Reading Time: 6 minutes
Do you have a craving for something sweet? If your taste buds yearn for a delectable delight, I have a treat that will surely win your heart over. Today, let me introduce you to an incredible recipe for luscious peanut butter goat milk fudge.
But before we embark on this culinary adventure, let me share a little anecdote. Earlier this year, I took part in an Instagram contest organized by Sugar Top Farm, LLC. The challenge was to guess the date and number of kids a doe would have. To my surprise, I won the contest and received a package of their famous peanut butter goat milk fudge.
Now, I must confess, I wasn’t particularly fond of fudge. But my curiosity got the best of me, and I decided to give it a try. As I unwrapped the package, I braced myself with skepticism and took a small nibble. And let me tell you, it was love at first bite. The flavor was out of this world – perfectly sweet and incredibly rich. I shamelessly devoured the entire package, saving just one bite for my partner and mom. I was hooked.
Naturally, I couldn’t keep this newfound love to myself. The very next day, I shared my excitement on Instagram and reached out to the creator, Kristin Plante, for an interview and the recipe. Much to my delight, she agreed to talk about her fudge-making process and even shared her secret recipe!
A Journey to Fudge-Making Mastery
First, let’s take a moment to appreciate Kristin’s path to mastering the art of goat milk fudge. It all started in February 2013 when Kristin’s daughter, Mallory, wanted to raise a goat for her 4-H project. After thorough research, they decided to bring home an Alpine goat named Sugar. However, finding a high-quality, purebred Alpine herd near their Vermont home proved to be a challenge. Luckily, they were offered Sugar, a doe who had experienced two years of miscarriage. With love and care, they helped Sugar overcome her challenges and become an incredible mother, providing them with an abundance of milk.
Since Kristin homeschools her kids, she involved Mallory in the milk production process. Mallory became her kitchen assistant and taste tester, experimenting with various goat milk creations. It was during this time that they stumbled upon the recipe for their award-winning fudge. Mallory’s eyes lit up with joy as she exclaimed, “Mom, we can sell this!” And that’s exactly what they did. Thus, Sugar Top Farm, LLC was born, offering a variety of delightful goat milk fudge flavors.
Tips from a Fudge Expert
Kristin graciously shared some invaluable tips for creating the perfect fudge. She emphasized the importance of calibrating a candy thermometer before starting a batch. Accurate and consistent temperature readings are crucial because even slight variations can affect the final result. In addition, Kristin recommended making fudge on a clear day with low humidity to achieve optimal texture and flavor.
Using high-quality ingredients is vital for an exceptional end product. Kristin ensures her goats are well taken care of, providing them with the finest feed, free from antibiotics, hormones, or steroids. She firmly believes that happy goats produce exceptional milk, resulting in the most delicious fudge. When it comes to additional ingredients, sourcing locally is ideal, but the key is always prioritizing quality.
Throughout the fudge-making process, paying close attention is essential. Kristin shared a clever trick – running a stick of butter around the pan’s rim to prevent boiling over. This simple technique can save you from messy mishaps and ensure a smooth cooking experience.
After our conversation, it became evident that Kristin’s passion for fudge-making shines through in every bite. Her meticulous attention to detail, commitment to quality, and dedication to flavor make her a true fudge expert. So if you’re looking to satisfy your sweet tooth, I highly recommend trying her creamy peanut butter goat milk fudge. It’s a taste sensation that will leave you wanting more.
