So, I'm back from my trip and am now broke. In the spirit of not having anything, and having developed a love for a TV show hosted by a pair referred to as The Supersizers, I'll be featuring some fantastic (or not ?!) British WWII Ration recipes. Albeit with some modern updates.
This carrot fudge was a typical treat. Carrots were a bountiful substitute for fruits and sweets. Originally it was made with only orange essence or a little squash, so this version is sweeter than the original, and I'm afraid that it only just counts as sweet. Think of how much of a shock the original must've been! I suggest adding a few tablespoons of a liquid sweetener, eg. agave syrup, when you add the orange juice, if you feel that you may be shocked by the lack of sweetness!
