In Response to Re: Fresh Fudge??:
Nellie -- I make lots of divinity. I use the recipe from my 1961 Better Homes cookbook and it requires an electric mixer. It doesn't take over a few minutes of stirring ..... a long boil to reach correct temp but easy electric beating. What recipe do you use?

i don't make divinity or regular fudge (just the Fantasy fudge) at all because I have a bulging disc in lower back and because of various surgeries on both hands and thumbs, i have both grip and repetitive motion limitations.
also living in the Texas gulf coast area, a lot of humidity that often creates problems with this type of recipe.
i would like to try the opera fudge if it is made with less .
in fact, since i haven't been able to get any of my regular crew(my "Grands") to come over i haven't even made coookies yet. when they get that driver's license they forget all about aunt nellie who allowed all of them to chauffer her around with a learner's permit (even before their drandparents did)
but i bet they'll miss my cookies thia year
