"As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy, and to make plans."--Ernest Hemingway

Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until mixture comes to a full rolling bill. Boil without stirring to 234 degrees on a candy thermometer or until syrup when dropped in bery cold water forms a soft ball which flattens when removed from water.Bulb of candy thermometer should not rest on bottom of pan. This can take 20 to 30 minutes,. Remove from heat and then add butter and vanilla. Do Not Stir! Cool at room temperature to 110 degrees (lukewarm). This can take 2 to 2 1/2 hours. Beat with wooden spoon until fudge thickens and loses some of its gloss. This can take 15-20 minutes. It really works best if you have someone to tag-team with. It starts to look more like frosting than thick syrup when it is ready Quicklyspread into prepared pan and let cool. Cut into squares.
