Homemade Fudge

So we finally got Jeff to make his famous fudge for us.  I think the last time he made this was at least 15 years ago!  But he still looks like he’s in control.

You will need:

1 cup milk
1 tin condensed milk
4 cups sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cream of tartar (dissolved in 1 teaspoon water)
1 tablespoon butter
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
Oven pan smeared with butter

Add together milk, condensed milk, sugar and salt in a pot and mix on low-medium heat on stove.

When mixture starts to boil add cream of tartar.

Keep an eye on mixture, stirring almost continously until thick. (and the mixture is a deeper caramel colour.). This takes about 40 minutes.*

Once you take the mixture off the stove add the tablespoon of butter and teaspoon vanilla essence and mix again.  Press mixture into oven pan about 1cm thick and cut into blocks.**

*There’s a fine line between making perfect fudge, toffee and over-cooking! (Might take a bit of practice.) You can put a bit of cold water in a cup and add some of the mixture to this water.- If it forms a small ball and is no longer toffee consistency, then it’s ready.

**Invite people over.  Don’t eat too many blocks by yourself!  Too much sugar is not good for you.
