  • About


  • ΒΌ pint milk
  • 1 ΒΌlb granulated sugar
  • 2oz butter
  • 8oz nuts (hazelnuts or walnuts)


    Put the milk and sugar into a saucepan and leave to soak for forty-five minutes. Add the butter and heat gently, stirring very occasionally until the sugar has dissolved. When the sugar has dissolved, bring the mixture to the boil and boil quickly, sometimes stirring so the mixture does not stick on the bottom of the pan, for about fifteen minutes, until a little of the mixture forms a soft ball when dropped into a cup of cold water. Add the chopped nuts and beat until the fudge is thick and creamy. Pour into a greased tin. Just before it sets, mark into squares.
