On my quest for the best fudge recipe I decided to try this one. I am new to candy making so I tried to follow the recipe as closely as possible. The one hitch I ran in to was that as I cooked the mixture on medium, the candy thermometer seemed stuck at about 200 degrees. After about 8 minutes I incresed the heat to medium high (number 7 on my stove) and eventually I hit the requested 235 degrees.
The fudge is very tasty and I love the texture, and there is either a nutty or a slightly burnt taste to the fudge... I can't decide which.
My question for any fudge experts out there is this... should I have just waited (and left the stove set at 5) and the temperature would eventually rise to 235 or was I to increase the temperature once the sugar was added and dissolved and hit 235 as quickly as possible.
