Pecan Pie Coconut Fudge

I reject the idea of seasonal flavours.

I get it, I’ve done it myself.  Just the taste of crisp apples reminds me of fall, at Christmas I can’t get enough of peppermint and a red velvet cheesecake or cupcake is the perfect gift for Valentine’s Day, but I reject the idea that certain foods can only be eaten in certain seasons – there is never a bad time for a much loved food.

Part of that is probably the result of frequent travel between the UK and the US and not being able to always eat the foods I’m craving – if they’re in the wrong country.  In fact, last night, I would have done anything for a particular comfort food – a turkey sandwich from Wawa.  As a result, I like to eat what I’m craving whenever it’s available.  Ice cream on Christmas? Sure.  Cheese fondue in July?  Amazing.

So while it may seem like a ridiculous idea to make pecan pie coconut fudge – it is, after all, June, it’s worth noting that this June in London has not felt at all like a proper summer with alternating humid hot weather and brutal thundestorms.  So despite the fact that this includes special Thanksgiving M&Ms, I felt like a bit of pecan and coconut – and it was definitely a satisfying craving.
