    Excellent!

    I've experimented - I made some a few weeks ago and stuck it in the freezer. Defrosted it today and it still tastes fine, & texture stays fine too. Yay!

    I made the James Martin one at 3.30 this morning when I couldn't sleep. Except for needing a lot longer to boil than it says, more like 40 mins than 20, it's worked really well. I'm using the trimming to reward son no2 for helping me
    I could not live without a garden, it is my place to unwind and recover, to marvel at the power of all growing things, even weeds!

    How's it going Bephlam? Hope it's a success

    BarleySugar, every recipe I've tried takes longer to boil than it says!

    I officially can't make fudge - I've had THREE attempts, with three recipes...and it's still not working. So, I give up!!!!

    What went wrong with mine. I made it for a second time yesterday and about half of it came out rather grainy.

    Any ideas!

    I think you need to beat it in the early cooling stage - as far as I recall, the recipe I posted turns out a bit like butter tablet which is supposed to be a bit grainy

    Did you try the recipe for the chocolatey stuff that I gave you? Did that work? That is definately a foolproof recipe, and i think it's gorgeous
