This is a traditional Scottish recipe from the town of Melrose in the county of Angus. It is made with locally abundant ingredients (honey and ginger) and neighbouring Dundee's world-famous marmalade. Since I am posting this recipe at the request of a member and have not personally made it, I am assuming that the number of tarts that the recipe will produce is dependant on the size of the pie tins used. I am also taking a guess at the number of servings.
