History Of Butterscotch

The origin of  "butterscotch" can be traced back to Doncaster, a city in Yorkshire, England. Samuel Parkinson, a confectioner who started producing it as hard candy in 1817, is usually credited with creating it. All that said, there is no clear origin to the confection's name. The logic behind the 'butter' part of the name is obvious. However, the 'scotch' part is more mysterious. Since the sugar is heated to a very high temperature, some claim that the word is derived from the word scorched. Another hypothesis attributes the word "scotch" to Scottish origins. No matter where it came from, there's no escaping the sweetness of this treat!
