The Potager pays off

There is an art to fudge. I suppose there is an art to everything, but fudge is in my world now so that is the art I see. If you under cook it it doesn't set. If you over cook it it hardens and cracks ... not fudge. The humidity, the air pressure, the attention, the stirring - 0r lack of stirring plays a part. it's not even recognised as a real candy by the great candy makers of the world, but... it is still an art.



Today it eluded me. At least three times. On the fourth try I think I nailed it. Tomorrow will tell.

For respite the potager, a glass of wine, and a book...

Wine and fresh picked beans

Nasturtiums


Jade beans

Of course there are steaks on the grill that have to be attended to and corn on the cob and freshly picked beans to steam... Life doesn't stop just because the fudge didn't turn out.
