Recipe for Strawberry Fudge


    Strawberry Fudge

    2 cups granulated sugar
    1 cup preserved strawberries
    1/2 cup water
    2 egg whites
    1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar

    Boil sugar, water, and cream of tartar to firm ball stage (248 degrees F).

    Add strawberries which have been drained as dry as possible. Let come to a boil again. Pour slowly, beating constantly, over stiffly beaten egg whites. Beat until thick and fluffy. Pour into well-buttered pans. When firm cut in squares. Any thick preserves or candied fruit may be substituted for strawberries.
