Scottish Tablet
this is my dad's recipe and now that you've reminded me i'll probably need 
to make some . 
 
 
  400ml (14 fl oz) tin condensed milk
1 kg  (2 1/4 lb) granulated sugar
  250g (9 oz) unsalted butter
  600ml (20 fl oz) hot water
 
place all ingredients into a large pan and bring to a boil and then reduce 
to a medium heat. the temperature is important. it won't set if too cold 
and goes a dark colour and too hot and it sticks to the bottom and burns. 
aim to have the tablet simmering at about double the original volume. 
simmer for 30-40 minutes until it turns to a caramel colour and started to 
thicken. stir it at this stage and it will probably have "caught" on the 
bottom but this isn't a problem. remove the pan from the heat and beat the 
mixture until it starts to thicken and set in the pan. pour in to a lined 
tray and leave for a few hours to harden.
