Instructions

  1. In a saucepan dissolve the sugar with the cream and baking soda over medium heat, stirring constantly. Bring mixture to a boil and stop stirring. Continue to boil the mixture until it makes a thick syrup that forms a ball when dropped into cold water (firm ball stage).
  2. Remove the pan from the heat and add the butter, orange peel, nuts and a pinch of salt. Beat the mixture well until it becomes quite thick.
  3. Pour fudge onto a buttered plate.
  4. When cold cut fudge into 1-inch squares or drop by teaspoons onto a large buttered platter.
