    Unflavored fudge base?

    Shut the front door!!! There is this lady that travels around to local shows selling her homemade fudge! Told me she had a fudge kettle and made each batch from scratch! But she had all these different flavors! I was like “how in the world does she do this??!” As I’ve made fudge before.... and it didn’t look anything like her super creamy, smooth and 50 flavors of fudge... These Egullet Forums are amazing!!! 😁😁
  5. What?! How did I not know this! I have his Professional book. I did go to college for Culinary Arts but not pastry! I’m going to have to find his At Home book!

    They were fresh. Purchased at my local grocery store. I never did roasts them. Would that effect it?

    Cashews in caramel

    Hello everyone! Haven’t posted in a while. I used Cashews and Peanuts in my caramel and after a few weeks the caramel didn’t crystallize but it seems to have had all the moisture sucked out of it! The caramels without nuts were fine. Is there a way to prevent this or was it the type of nuts I used ? what I didn’t do before using them? Thanks for the help !

    Freeze Dried Fruit Powder

    Hey everyone! I have searched online for a company that offers freeze dried fruit and powders to use in my chocolates. Can you please share with me the online sources or stores you use? I don’t need bulk but smaller Quanities.
