I love fudge and have not made any for years, so thought it about time I make some. I started with a fresh strawberry creamy fudge with chunks of meringues in it, just like the real British summer time treat, Eton Mess. First served to students in the 1930s at the prestigious Eton College after a dog sat on a picnic hamper!
Next I want to have a go at some other British Summer pudding inspired fudge. Perhaps a fresh strawberry and custard fudge to emulate the trifle or a mixed fresh strawberries, blackberries, raspberries and red currants fudge to emulate the Summer Pudding.
I packaged mine up in pretty pink strawberry bags
You must use a candy thermometer as making fudge is an exact science
You can use a heavy based saucepan if you do not have a jug
Remember the mixture gets very hot, so please take care
