Giv­ing a fudge about the fes­tive hol­i­days

Saturday Star - - NEWS - CHANTEL MAN­NING

THE RICH, sweet taste of fudge from my child­hood still lives on to­day. I was al­ways busy ex­per­i­ment­ing in the kitchen with all the de­light­ful flavours of sim­ple child­friendly food. Cook­ing has a way of bring­ing ev­ery­one to­gether in the kitchen, chat­ting, en­joy­ing life and cre­at­ing mem­o­ries.This is a very old recipe my grandma and I use to make for the Christ­mas hol­i­days: Easy Meals for Busy Peo­ple 2 cups Cas­tor Sugar 1 Tin Con­densed Milk 2 tbsp Golden Syrup 1/4 cup Wa­ter 4 tbsp But­ter 1 tsp Vanilla Method Place the sugar and wa­ter into a pot. Stir over low heat un­til sugar is dis­solved. Add but­ter, syrup and con­densed milk. Keep stir­ring. Sim­mer over a low heat un­til fudge mix­ture be­comes a dark caramel colour. (Ap­prox­i­mately 25 min­utes.)

Re­move from the stove, add vanilla and beat un­til it thick­ens. Pour into a greased pan, al­low to cool. Cut into squares once cooled.
