Salted everything is all the rage at the moment; salted caramel, salted chocolate, salted honeycomb. I was inspired to make this salted tablet after after kindly receiving a packet of Burnt Sugar’s Sea Salt Caramel Fudge for Christmas from my Aunt. It was totally delicious, however I found the texture to be closer to that of Scottish tablet rather than that of traditional English fudge.
For those of you not familiar with tablet, it is a Scottish sweet that has often been described as fudge’s grainy Scottish cousin. It has a much more brittle and grainy texture than fudge, which is usually much softer and smoother. Furthermore, tablet requires the use of condensed milk rather than cream as the main liquid component.
