    A favourite for school fetes, gatherings or as a gift. This recipe is just as tasty as chocolate fudge but a little different!

    Serves: 12 

    • 340ml evaporated milk
    • 600g caster sugar
    • 30g butter
    • 275g fresh strawberries, hulled and sliced
    • 2 tablespoons lemon juice

    Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:25min  ›  Ready in:35min 

    1. Butter a 23x23cm dish.
    2. Combine milk, sugar and butter in a large saucepan over medium heat; boil. Stir in strawberries and lemon juice. Heat, stirring constantly, to between 235 degrees C and 240 degrees C, or until a small amount of the mixture dropped into cold water forms a soft ball that flattens when removed from the water and placed on a flat surface.
    3. Remove from heat and quickly spread in prepared dish. Let cool before cutting and serving.

    The name strawberry fudge is inaccurate. It had the texture of caramel and the flavour of sultanas (which I loathe). Strawberries don't boil well, I guess. And just because something is cooked to soft ball stage, put it in a pan to cool, and cut it into squares, doesn't make it fudge. Obviously we didn't like it.  -  29 Sep 2008


    This was my first attempt at candy making. This is really tasty, though mine were more like taffy than fudge in texture (probably my inexperience, not necessarily the recipe!). It didn't set firmly. I'd like to get a thermumeter and try it again as we love the flavour. Quick and easy.  -  29 Sep 2008


    This had a great flavour, but did not get firm. I followed the recipe exactly and used a candy thermumeter to verify proper temp. Please help. I would love to be able to make this so it comes out correctly.  -  29 Sep 2008
