Ginger and Cherry Fudge
This is my go-to recipe. I love the fudge it makes I heat it to 117 on a thermometer for perfect results every time.



Demerara sugar




Glacé cherries, halved


Stem ginger, chopped


You will also need…

20cm square tin lined with baking parchment

Step 1 of 3

Heat the milks, sugar and butter in a large, non stick saucepan over a low heat, stirring until the sugar dissolves completely. Bring to the boil and simmer over a low heat for 10–15 minutes, stirring continuously and scraping the base of the pan, until a soft ball of fudge is formed when a little of the mixture is dropped into a jug of cold water.

Remove from the heat and beat the fudge by hand until thick and grainy (about 10 minutes).
