Lemon fudge?

Has anyone got a recipe for Lemon Fudge, using real lemons instead of extract?

I found a Lemon Walnut Fudge on the WWW, but it's not an easy recipe and I didn't fancy it.

I've not seen lemon fudge. Maybe someone else will have a recipe for you.

Alex.. do you know how long sweetened condensed milk will last after it's opened? Lemon fudge sounds like a nice change from chocolate. Thanks for the idea daisy.

OK, haven't tried this one myself, let me know how it turns out.

3 (6 oz pkgs) white chocolate baking squares
1 (14 oz) can of Eagle Brand condensed milk
2 tbsp lemon zest
1 tbsp lemon juice (freshly squeezed is best)
1 cup chopped almonds

Melt chocolate and condensed milk together in microwave (about 1-3 minutes on high). Stir until chocolate is completely melted. Add other ingredients and pour into a 8x8 pan. Chill until firm. *I line pans with parchment when I make fudge*

pdswife, I think it lasts a LONG time if you store it in the fridge in a sealed container. It has a tendency to take on smells and flavours so make sure it is well sealed. DON'T store it in the can.

Thanks Alix. I've copied and pasted the recipe. I make cookies/treats for the neighbors every Christmas. I'm going to try this one out. Thanks too for the info about storing the milk.

Thanks Alix! I was beginning to despair. I suppose it would be stretching a point to find a recipe for lemon fudge that doesn't call for white chocolate? Or perhaps I could use something else instead? (It's not one of my favourite things.)

Daisy, I think it is mostly to solidify the condensed milk. I can't think what else you could use. I'm not a big white chocolate fan either, but I think the lemony flavour would compensate in this case. I'll cruise my recipe books and see if I can find another one for you.

Nestle has the Toll house vanilla chips. Will that work?
