This was the first recipe I tried the day after we brought home a dairy goat! Our doe produces about 12 Oz. Per milking so this was the perfect start! I have zero experience with any type of candy making, and I had always heard fudge making is tricky (in my family we worry about getting it to set).
I followed the recipe, and used natural 100% peanut butter. I added a 1/4 tsp sea salt, and after putting it in the pan, I sprinkled a little sea salt on top.
This was a HUGE hit!
As to the other reviewer- check your goat milk before using it. It should taste sweeter than cows milk and creamier than whole milk. If you taste "goat" its either aged (use it for cheese making), or it wasn't chilled/filtered (makes food pet food).
Not a thing 'wrong' with this recipe but I do have some advice as a dairy goat owner! Keep the buck FAR away from your nannies and you will have good sweet milk! Nothing worse than 'tasting' goat in your milk, it comes from nannies being too close to the buck.........I raise Nubians and learned this the hard way, lol!
Tried this recipe cause I had goat's milk given to me, unfortunately I have to say the flavor is very strong. You have to like goat's milk I guess to enjoy this recipe! Will continue making fudge the old fashion way.
