There is no question that the good people of Scotland can be credited with introducing the world to many, many fine things. For example: the fine game of golf, the handsome kilt, and Scotch. What is in question however is whether or not the Scots can take credit for introducing humankind to Butterscotch. There are people in Scotland will argue up and down that yes, the Scots were the
ones who first boiled down brown sugar and butter to create the sweet hard candy. However, there are those who will argue up and down that in fact the confection derives its name from the process of scorching the butter, a process that in older times was known as “scotching”. Aha, but the Scots will argue, the scotching of butter was invented in Scotland! The truth is, the actual origin of
butterscotch has been lost in the mists of time. We shall perhaps never get to the bottom of the dispute. What we can get to the bottom of time and time again however is a delicious cup of piping hot butterscotch tea. This tea is wonderful with a dash of milk to open up the buttery sweet flavor. You can also try it over ice if you like. It‟s like candy in a cup!
