    Hi there
    Does anyone have a goat milk fudge recipe that does NOT include either chocolate, marshmallows or peanut butter? :greengrin:

    On this side of the atlantic it is a fair travesty of justice to put any of those items in fudge, ROFL, we usually have either vanilla flavour, or rum and raisin, etc. etc.

    Thanks
    LW

    This is adapted from a recipe in the Fanny Farmer Cookbook

    Vanilla Fudge

    2 cups sugar
    3/4 cup milk
    2 tablespoon light corn syrup
    2 tablespoons butter cut into small pieces
    2 teaspoons vanilla

    Oil an 8"x8" pan. Combine the sugar, milk and corn syrup in a 3 quart heavy pot, stirring to blend all ingredients. Set over low heat and, stirring slowly, bring to a boil. Cover the pot and let boil for 2 to 3 minutes. Uncover and wash down the sides of the pot with a pastry brush dipped in cold water. Continue to boil slowly without stirring until the syrup reaches the soft-ball stage (234F) Remove from the heat, add the butter without stirring and set the pot on a cooling surface or rack. Do not stir until the syrup is lukewarm (110F), then add the vanilla and stir without stopping until the mixture loses its gloss and thickens. Pout it into the oiled pan and mark into squares. When firm, cut into pieces and store in an airtight container.

    Makes 1 1/2 lbs of fudge

    weevil, give me a few hours and after work tomorrow (wednesday) I'll do some checking on what you can use to "substitute" the corn syrup with...though I think it's used in the recipes to keep granulation on the sides of the cooking pot from forming... :greengrin:

    Since I can't consume corn or corn products I just skip using the corn syrup in that recipe. I think it is just in there to help it come out a little smoother. People have been making smooth fudge without it for forever, so I don't think it'll hurt anything to just not include it.

    Yum

    Liz, I just wanted to thank you for posting these recipes. I know the thread is old, but I just tried the butter pecan fudge recipe last weekend, and it was wonderful! The kids ALL loved it - even the one who normally doesn't eat anything with nuts. It was seriously yummy!

    My 9 year-old son has his first goat that he bought with his own money. He is so darn proud of all of the milk she makes. We will be making fudge tomorrow for sure. Thank you for sharing the recipes. The vanilla is just like what my mom would make (with store milk).
