Fudge is a type of sugar candy, made by mixing sugar and milk, heating it to the soft-ball stage at 240 °F, beating the mixture while it cools so that it acquires a smooth, creamy consistency. In texture, this crystalline candy falls in between hard caramels. Fruits, chocolate, candies and other flavors are sometimes added either inside or on top. A recent trend has been to create novel flavors of fudge, giving vibrant visual appeal at the same time. Fudge is bought as a gift from a gift shop in tourist areas and attractions. Fudge originated in the US during the late 19th century. Recipes were printed in many advertisements during the 1880s, its popularity was due to the decreasing cost of refined white sugar, due to the ability to make it at home without special equipment. Its inexpensive, unrefined qualities made it popular among people looking for a candy alternative that fell in between expensive, fancy candies and the cheapest sweets. Fudge shops in tourist places such as Mackinac Island in Michigan began opening during the 1880s.

In a letter written in 1921 by Emelyn Battersby Hartridge, she recounts the purchasing of a box of fudge for 40 cents a pound in 1886 in Baltimore, Maryland. Fudge-making was popular at women's colleges. A student at Vassar College in Poughkeepsie, New York, claimed to have introduced it there in 1888 by selling her own 30 lb batch; the diary of another student mentions making "fudges" in 1892. An 1893 letter from another Vassar College student describes "fudges" as containing sugar, chocolate and butter. A recipe for "Fudges at Vassar" was printed in The Sun in 1895. Despite describing the confections as "Vassar chocolates", the recipe given comprises sugar, milk and vanilla extract. Wellesley College and Smith College have their own versions of a fudge recipe dating from the late 19th or early 20th century. In forming a fondant, it is not easy to keep all vibrations and seed crystals from causing rapid crystallization into large crystals. Milkfat and corn syrup are added. Corn syrup contains glucose and maltose.

These sugars interact with sucrose molecules. They help prevent premature crystallization by inhibiting sucrose crystal contact; the fat helps inhibit rapid crystallization. Controlling the crystallization of the supersaturated sugar solution is the key to making smooth fudge. Initiation of crystals before the desired time will result in fudge with larger sugar grains; the final texture would be grainy, a quality indicative of low-quality fudge. One of the most important attributes of fudge is its texture; the end-point temperature separates hard caramel from fudge. The higher the peak temperature, the more sugar is dissolved and the more water is evaporated, resulting in a higher sugar-to-water ratio. Before the availability of cheap and accurate thermometers, cooks would use the ice water test known as the cold water test, to determine the saturation of the confection. Fudge is made at the "soft ball" stage, which varies by altitude and ambient humidity from 235 °F to 240 °F. Butter is added, the fudge is cooled and beaten until it is thick and small sugar crystals have formed.

The warm fudge is sometimes poured onto a marble slab to be shaped. Fudge-making evolved a variety of additives; the favored flavors vary by place. In the US, peanut butter and maple are popular alternatives to chocolate; when it is made from brown sugar, it is called penuche. This type of fudge is found in New England and the Southern United States. Pralines include nuts but not chocolate. Scots tablet is a Scottish confection with similar ingredients. Hot fudge in the United States and Canada is considered to be a chocolate product used as a topping for ice cream in a heated form sundaes and parfaits, it may occasionally be used as a topping for s'mores. It is a thick, chocolate-flavored syrup similar in flavor and texture to chocolate fudge, except melted so that it can be poured.

Suillellus mendax

Suillellus mendax is a species of bolete fungus found in Europe. It was published as a species of Boletus when it was newly described in 2013, but transferred to Suillellus the following year; this species is morphologically similar to the widespread Suillellus luridus, but differs in its predominantly acidophilous ecology, a dull-coloured, finely felty cap and more narrowly ellipsoid to subfusiform spores measuring 13.3–14.7 × 4.9– 5.5 μm. Suillellus mendax forms ectomycorrhizal associations with beech and sweet chestnut. So far, it has been molecularly verified from Italy and the island of Cyprus. Suillellus mendax in Index Fungorum

Graham Local School District

Graham Local School District is a rural district in Champaign County, Ohio. The district serves the St. Paris area, several other small communities including: Rosewood, Terre Haute, Millerstown and Thackery; the district is named after local legend A. B. Graham, the founder of the 4-H agriculture program. Graham LSD is one of the largest school districts in Ohio, in terms of area covered; the district covers over 185 square miles, nearly the size the Columbus, Ohio. Despite this, the number of students is small, estimated to be about 2300 district-wide. Before the Graham Local School District existed, there were six independent schools in the western Champaign county area: Concord, Christiansburg-Jackson, Rosewood, St. Paris, Terre Haute and Westville; each school consisted of a one building school which housed all grades for their respected population. In 1957, these 6 buildings were consolidated to form Graham. Concord School became Graham East Elementary. Christiansburg-Jackson School and Rosewood School became Graham South Elementary and Graham North Elementary, respectively.

The St. Paris School became Graham Junior High School, Graham High School was built on U. S. Route 36, near Kite Road, its unclear what Westville and Terre Haute schools were used for after the merger. In 2000, a new building, Graham Middle School, was constructed just east of St. Paris on 36; the old Graham Junior High School building is used for the Board of Education, administrative offices, the Graham Digital Academy. In 2007, yet another building, Graham Elementary, was built right next to the Middle School. Graham Elementary replaced the venerable elementary schools of Graham North, Graham East and Graham South. Both North and South buildings have been demolished after nearly 100 years of service; the Concord school building is used as a community center. In 2009, Graham High School underwent a $13 million renovation, including a new kitchen area, air conditioning, a new gymnasium.
