Fresh Strawberry Fudge

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Punky Julster

This recipe is a little different because it used fresh strawberries. The cook time is an estimate since I'm not sure about it.

I don't know what I did wrong but it never got pass 220 degrees for me. I'm heart-sick because I used premium, juicy, freshly picked strawberries from Eckert's in IL. When I added the lemon juice to the boiling mixture, it curdled. That was not a good indicator, in my book. Save yourself a lot of TIME and disappointment and make some "Cinnamon Glazed Strawberries" to serve over vanilla ice cream instead!
