Carrot Fudge

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!

Carrot Fudge
makes approx 12 squares

140g carrots, scrubbed, finely grated
100ml orange juice
140ml water
1 tbsp agar flakes

Put carrot & water in a small saucepan.
Cook gently over med-low heat for 10 mins.
Add orange juice.
Cook a further 5 mins.
Turn heat down to low.

Cook gently, stirring often, until flakes have dissolved.
Pour into a flat rectangular container, around 500ml size.
Leave to cool for 10 mins.
Place in fridge to set.
When set, Cut into small squares.
Keep in the fridge.


  1. Yummi, this looks so delicious I could eat some right now!! :) Thanks for sharing!

  2. Oh it does look nice! Will try with Agave to be sure tho, might confuse dinner and dessert otherwise! :)

    Hey - I know some good diving places on Østerbro, I'm pretty broke myself. Have bike tho, will travel to Amager.

  3. You're welcome, rose water :)

    Jennie - Yeah, put some agave in it. I'm sure your boys will thank you for it! Diving sounds good. Probably better if we tried around Østerbro, I can't really think of anywhere around here.

  4. That looks good. Love the Supersizers!! Welcome back by the way! Emma :)
