I know it sounds really bad, but it's really good! It tastes like a veggie free zone, so if you really feel like you have to sneak it into family and friends, do it with dessert! Different vegetables and fruits can be used in this recipe to vary it. You can add apple; chocolate; carrot; beetroot. Try your own varieties and see what happens. Sure, it's different, but there's nothing wrong with unconventional now and then.
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 2 cups sugar
- 1 (400 g) can condensed milk
- 1⁄2 cup fruit or 1⁄2 cup vegetables, finely chopped or shredded
- Prepare a greased square slice pan or dish. Heat the butter and sugar very gently and stir until the sugar is dissolved. Add half a cup of finely shredded fruit or vegetable, then add the condensed milk.
- Stir constantly and keep the heat low or your mixture will burn. After about 20 minutes your mixture will be bubbling throughout.
- If you want to add chocolate at this stage, you can. Six squares of cooking chocolate should be about right. Once it's completely blended throughout, pour into your dish and let it cool.
- Cut into squares and enjoy!
Definitely unusual, & certainly GREAT TASTING! I'll try other fruits & veggies another time, but this time I stuck with the suggestions ~ apples, carrots, beets (oh, yeah, & a firm anjou pear all diced, not shredded)! And then, the chocolate! DO NOT tell anyone what's in it until after they've tasted it, then hopefully they'll keep on with the raves!! Thanks for sharing such an unusual recipe!
