If you can never seem to make a decent batch of fudge, don’t fret. Faye Hammonds of Calhoun County was in the same boat until 1983, when a man gave her his “never-fail” fudge recipe during the Alfa Farmers annual meeting. Almost two decades later, Faye still swears by the simple recipe. Trouble is, she doesn’t remember the man’s name, so she just calls it “John Doe’s Fudge.” If peanut butter is more your style, though, you might want to try Peanut Butter Marshmallow Fudge, courtesy of La Rue Burt of Bibb County. In fact, all the recipes in this edition of the “Country Kitchen” come straight from the cupboards of La Rue and Faye. The list includes a sinful Chocolate Cake that’s been in La Rue’s family for 80 years. Her other sweet sensations include Gingersnaps, Pecan Pound Cake and Banana Cupcakes. Faye shares her recipes for Hawaiian Sweet Potato Pie and an old-fashioned Sorghum Skillet Cake. After your sweet tooth is satisfied, you might also want to try La Rue’s Macaroni and Cheese and Meatloaf.
