I do not have to take any fudge with me on my next trip to Mexico since I took a big box for Alejandro's family on my trip in October. They carefully ration it out as if it were some precious treat, and they still have a good supply. There is no word in Spanish for fudge, so I simply refer to it as "chocolate". Alejandro's little nephew Ezra is especially fond of my fudge, but it wasn't always that way. A few years ago when I first brought them a box, Ezra tasted a piece and declared that it tasted like "rotten salmon". I have no idea how he would know what rotten salmon tastes like, but I suspect that he was expecting the "chocolate" to be sweeter than it is. In any event, it didn't take long for him to develop a taste for my fudge.
In the coming days I will be delivering many boxes of "rotten salmon" !
