Shore-style fudge, made fresh in the NJ Highlands
Susan Garbowski, fudge maker extraordinaire, is a Vernon resident. She always loved to cook and bake, and when she was younger, began her love affair making chocolate by melting chocolate into molds for Christmas. Next came gingerbread houses, and before she knew it, she was making fudge.
The business official began in September of last year in conjunction with her husband, Keith. They were inspired by childhoods at the Jersey Shore…
“It’s that wonderful smell when you walk into the fudge shop,” Sue said. “Knowing we can’t go home without getting our fudge and taffy,” is what prompted her to begin Sue’s House of Fudge.
Their fudge is always fresh and made with real cream and butter. Chocolate Peanut Butter and Maple Walnut are their best sellers, but Sue said her favorite is Raspberry Swirl.
“You can buy Fudge pre packaged at anywhere. Like the shore, we cut to order. You can mix and match flavors,” Sue said. “People tell me they love that they can get this selection without having to go to the shore.”
Despite being shore-quality, all of Sue’s fudge is made fresh at a firehouse in Wayne, NJ.

We had loads of lettuce from our community gardeners last week–2 full crates! We also
harvested radishes, peas, kale, arugula… so much abundance.
Because of the literal AMPLE HARVEST, we were able to donate to two
pantries –West Milford Presbyterian and St. Joseph’s. Thank you everyone for your continued support.
We accept produce donations at West Milford Farmer’s Market on Wednesdays by 6:30PM–If you grow too much, don’t let it go to waste …. Share it with those in need!
Look for the cooler at the market entrance. Each week, one of our local food pantries will receive the fresh produce and make sure it goes to those in need. Thank you for your support!
This week’s donation will go to Queen of Peace
Note that produce must be fresh and suitable for eating.
We are proud that Ample Harvest started here in 2009. We continue to reach our local food pantries with fresh produce by allowing gardener’s such as you to donate rather than let your precious plants go to waste.
