Ingredients
  • 4 Grower’s Selection Granny Smith Apples
  • 300g Demerara sugar
  • 3tbsp Great to Bake Golden Syrup
  • 1/2 tsp cider vinegar
  • Chopped nuts, to decorate (optional)
Method
  • Put the apples in a sieve over the sink; pour over a kettle-full of boiling water to remove the wax. Dry with a tea towel. Remove any stalks and insert wooden sticks or skewers. Put on a baking tray, lined with baking parchment.

  • Heat a large pan over a high heat. When it begins to smoke, add the sugar, syrup and vinegar; reduce to a low-medium heat and swirl the pan to melt the sugar evenly and make a toffee.

  • Heat for 6-10 mins until it reaches 150C (or drop 1tsp toffee in cold water – if it hardens, it’s ready).

  • Dip the apples into the toffee until evenly coated then dip into the nuts, if you like. Cool until hard.
