I've been wanting to make fudge for ages and found condensed milk that was begging me to use it. I didn't want to make just any fudge, I wanted it to be different both in flavour and in texture.
I decided to add barberries and pistachios with a hint of cardamom. I can tell you I was not disappointed, the taste is sweet but has that slight sourness coming through from the barberries as the fudge melts in your mouth. The pistachios add an extra dimension and crunch. I made a smooth fudge but you can leave it longer on the heat to make it crumbly.
397g condensed milk (1 tin)
1/3 cup barberries
1/3 cup whole pistachios
1 tbsp margarine
1/4 tsp ground cardamom
1tsp vanilla essence
Place a medium sized pan over medium heat
Add the condensed milk
Add the rest of the ingredients to it
Mix the ingredients into the condensed milk
Continue to mix thoroughly until the fudge pulls away from sides of the pan
Empty into a parchment lined container
Place the fudge in the fridge until firm and not sticky
Cut into squares and serve
