Silky Fudge - A Rabble Rouser Monthly Recipe

 by Amanda Ramsay
I've had this recipe since the 5th of September 2000. The world was really different back then. 
The first time I had a chance to try this recipe was with a friend when we were the weekly house cooks during a program we both participated in called Katimavik. 
She was and is one of the most excellent cooks, bakers or chefs I've ever met. I watched in awe as she told me what a bunch of these kitchen terms meant. Some things we learned together and some I pretended to know until something didn't work and I had to eat my words. I blame some of it on my mother who prefers to work alone, but I can't fault her, I like to work alone too! The other half is that I'm not particularly interested in cooking. Perhaps why I admire domestic Mommas, I ain't one!
That week, she called me out on my shit for being a little shit, but at the same time she was the most authentic and gentle spirits who, deeply inside, held the heart of a Goddess. Within her I felt a domestic power kin to a Goddess like Hestia, the measured magical talent of Cerridwen, or the strong power of the Roman Lares who ensure everything around them prospers. 
Today, I watch from across the continent on Facebook (et. al. social media.) to see what she's up to. I'm not surprised to see that she is surrounded by love. 
The fudge she made from this recipe made me a believer. Want to join the fudge lovers cult?
