Cobnut Fudge

Just to let you know, this post was written before I started the paleo diet to help ease my psoriasis. Nowadays I eat a more allergy-friendly diet, but leave these older, non-paleo posts up in case they are useful to readers, as I know not everyone eats the same as I do. Thanks for your understanding. 

Do you know what cobnuts are? Well, they're a type of hazelnut and they grow here, in Britain - in Kent, to be exact. And as nuts, they pair really well with chocolate. So when I was asked if I might like to try a little handmade chocolate and Kentish cobnut fudge, of course I said yes.

The fudge is made at Potash Farm, near Sevenoaks in Kent. It's sweet, slightly crumbly and comes in generous, dark blocks. There are just enough cobnuts in the fudge to be able to taste them and give the fudge a little crunch, but for me personally, it would be the icing on the cake if there were a few more. 

There's nothing weird in the ingredients either - just sugar, evaporated milk, Kentish cobnuts, cream, condensed milk and butter, cocoa and vanilla. 

It would be an unusual gift and draws on the popularity of the British Food movement that's happening right now. Perfect for a Christmas pressie too. Check out more at

Have you ever tried cobnuts in a recipe? What did you think of them?
