Yesterday, I tried to make fudge. I got it to the ‘ball’ stage when dropped into ice cold water and then kept stirring it for another ten minutes, then another and then another. It just didn’t ‘turn. I poured it into the mould but it stayed soft. It was not to be wasted so I made Toffee Apple crumble.
I made crumble as usual, by rubbing half the weight of fat to flour, I then added half a cup of sugar.
I peeled, cored and diced the apple, placed that in a small dish with chunks of the fudge. I sprinkled the crumble on top and cooked it in the mini oven for 40 minutes.
I made two crumbles from the windfall apples, the it all went wrong fudge. We had half of one tonight, we’ll have the other half in Tupperware for our lunch with the rest of the custard and one will go in the freezer.
