Someone declared today treat day at work. I made up some garlic fudge, some lemon bars and have some fresh vegatables for dip.
The garlic fudge looks good, in fact it looks like the best fudge I ever made. It looks like blonde fudge. My daughter loves it!
4 Tbls. butter
6 cloves garlic
1 cup evaporated milk
2 cups sugar
a pinch of salt
Cook all ingredients together until sugar dissolves.
Remove garlic and bring to a rolling boil until softball stage. Remove from heat. Stand 5 minutes.
Beat until stiff and pour onto greased cookie sheet.
Cut into squares. Store in air tight container.
What on earth possessed you to even try it? Or, if you followed a recipe, what on earth possessed the first person who ever made it to try it? That just seems like two great tastes that would NOT taste great together. I just won’t believe it.
Until you send me a pound for further testing!
I had the recipe, and this seemed like a good oppunity to try it. I did slice the cloves in half so they would release more flavor. My husband liked the cloves after they had been removed from the fudge. I think it was probably first made for a garlic festival.
I am glad that no one in my house is too narrowminded to try unusual food combinations. My daughter enjoys both cheese and sweet corn icecream and seems to like to try new foods.
I think the hot pepper fudge sounds nice. I think foods that will carmelize a bit would do well as fudge flavorings. Blanching may well make a better tasting garlic fudge, although I might like to let th cloves cool before adding to the sugar mixture so they do not burn too soon.
