I had always been told the sunny days are fudge days but I have discovered that humid or rainy days are the best days to make fudge. Making fudge can be challenging. If you boil the mixture too long the fudge will be too hard. If you do not boil the mixture long enough the fudge will never firm up and then you would have to eat it with a spoon. But the humidity on rainy days will make it less likely that you will over cook the mixture and so it is easier to make great fudge on rainy or humid days. Besides fudge can brighten an otherwise dreary day.

 

Peanutbutter Fudge

 

Measure out

  • 1 Cup of Peanutbutter

Set aside.

I like to have everything ready before beginging to boil the sugar mixture because once the mixture is set you have a very small window to stir in the remaining ingredients and pur into the pan before it firms up too much. Have your glass pan ready and nearby, have vanilla and a teaspoon nearby and peanutbutter all measured out. Also, have a short cold cup or glass of water with ice nearby to test the sugar mixture for the candy test below. Set your timer for 60 secconds but do not start it yet.

 

Candy Test: During the boiling phase drop a bit of the mixture into the cold water. If you can easily form a ball from the drop with your finger the candy is set. If not continue boiling and test again in a few seconds.

 

In a medium sauce pan bring to a boil

  • 1/2 Cup evaporated milk
  • 2 Cups Sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt

On medium high heat bring liquid to a full bubbling boil. Use a wooden spoon to stir the mixture frequently. If the sugar mixture sits still for too long in one place it will scorch and have a slighly burnt taste. When it comes to a full boil, continue stirring and boil for aproximately 60 seconds. Start your timer. Test the sugar mixture in cold water to see if it is done. Then remove from the heat. Quickly stir in the peanutbutter then mix in:

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Before it hardens too much, cut into squares

 

Pour into a glass 7" by 10" dish greased or ungreased it does not matter. Cool in refrigerator until almost firm. Remove and cut into squares. Fudge can be left out on the counter.
