Recipe Idea – Toffee Apples Makes six 6 medium apples - Rajka, Red Windsor, Michaelmas Red are all good choices. 225g light brown sugar 30g butter 2 tbsp. golden syrup
Insert a lolly stick into each apple at the stalk end. Put the sugar and 110ml water into a heavy-bottomed pan and heat until dissolved. Add the butter and syrup and boil for 12-15 minutes until it reaches 140 deg C, making sure it does not burn. The toffee is ready when a drop hardens and cracks when dropped into a cup of cold water. Dip each apple into the mixture, leave to dry on baking paper.
