comment Clarification on the process for making fudge
The way I've made Russian fudge I've started stirring it with an electric beater as soon as I take it off the heat, and I continue to stir until it starts to thicken (ie it's nearly set), at which point I pour it. The constant stirring seems to meant that the crystals that form stay very small, and the result is very reliable (no worrying about stray crystals).

@daniel, my understanding is that rancidity is dangerous. Quote by integrative medicine specialist Andrew Weil re rancid oils: "They're carcinogenic, pro-inflammatory and very toxic," articles.chicagotribune.com/2012-03-07/features/…

@Jolenealaska, it's electric, and modern (but not an expensive model).
