"What a wonderful experience the cooking
course has been. John & I have enjoyed the fun we have had, and
the expert knowledge passed on to us by Maynard & Benedict. Our
home cooking will be immeasurably enriched, our family & friends
amazed. Thanks for everything even tolerating my aversion to chilies,
spices & foam! The Walnut Grove is a gem, and Freya your visits
added to all our fun. Again, many, many thanks for a great experience."
Walnut Grove Recipes
Pistachio Nut Fudge
- 400g tin condensed milk
- 250g caster sugar
- 50g butter (finely diced)
- 125g chopped dark chocolate
- 75g pistachio nuts
1. Put condensed milk, sugar & butter in a saucepan and slowly
bring to the boil. Gently simmer until mixture reaches 116°C
using a temperature probe. Keep stirring to ensure the mixture
doesn't catch on the bottom of the pan.
2. Add the
chocolate and beat until it is all melted and the mixture is smooth,
then add the pistachio nuts and mix until they are evenly incorporated.
3. Line a loaf tin with cling-film and pour the mixture into it,
place in fridge until the fudge has set.
4. Cut into 2cm squares, (to cut the fudge more
easily put the blade of your sharp knife in a jug of boiling water
first) and keep in a sealed container.
Can be served as a a petit four, or just any time you fancy
Will keep in the fridge for up to two weeks in
a sealed container, so you can make it well in advance for when
you need it.
