Do you want any of them?[/quote]
After the wealth of info you've already kindly posted on my behalf, I'm almost hesitant to ask...but...
I sure would like to see that "divinity fudge"...and wonder if it's a variation of fudge using fondant in place of direct sugar.
I am amazed at the cookbook treasures you've found. How nice to know someone is out there actively pursuing these historical items and protecting them for the next generation! So many old arts are lost, which is why I determinedly make confections the old way...to be able to keep it alive.
Thank you, choclatechef!
