This is Juno's ginger fudge recipe. It's from when she attended a group in the neighbouring village called The Young Wives. Given that she's now 76, I think it's fair to say that she's had this a loooong time :-)
2 packets of Ginger Snap biscuits (crushed) <- use a processor for best results
2 teaspoons of dried ginger
1 cup and a wee bit more of brown sugar <- technical, right?
1/4lb of butter
1 large tin of condensed milk
1 pack cooking chocolate
Crush the biscuits and add the ginger to the mix.
Into a pan put butter, sugar and condensed milk- bring to boil slowly, stirring all the time. Don't go away and leave it! Let it boil for about 2 minutes.
Take off heat and mix thoroughly with crushed biscuit/ginger mix. Tip into tray-bake type tray and press into place and even off the top.
When cool, cover top with melted chocolate.
As cooling, mark out into SMALL squares or even triangles - it is VERY sweet and small portions will suffice.
Juno also points out that it's better to make it thinner (ie use a larger, rather than a deeper, tray)
I have no pictures of the ginger fudge squares because they are all eaten
