Pecan Buttermilk Fudge
I love toasted pecans. If they are not your thing, leave them out or substitute them with any other nut of your choice. This is not low in sugar, clearly. Please don’t ever ask me for a low-sugar fudge. It will never be fudge without the sugar. The very essence of fudge is sugar. Cooked to the right temperature and consistency. I have several fudge recipes on this site. Go cook all of them, and compare! Which is your favourite?
To toast nuts, place on a lined tray in a cold oven set to 200°C. Cook for 10 minutes exactly. Remove and cool.

Pour into large, buttered tin and allow to cool on the bench for hours until almost set. (Don’t be tempted to refrigerate to speed it up.)
Refrigerate. Cut into large pieces. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 weeks. (That’s a little bit hilarious. It will never last that long!)
