  • 6 eating apples
  • 450g demerara sugar
  • 50g Asda Unsalted Butter, plus extra for greasing
  • 2 tsp cider vinegar
  • 1 tbsp Asda Clear Honey
  • Wash and dry the apples. Push a stick into the base of each one through the core, making sure its secure (use ice lolly sticks or thin wooden skewers). Grease a piece of baking paper. Fill a bowl with cold water and keep this ready to test the toffee.

  • Put the sugar, butter, vinegar, honey and 150ml cold water into a pan and heat, stirring, until the sugar has dissolved.

  • Boil for 10 minutes or until the mixture turns to toffee, testing frequently towards the end. It's ready when a small piece dropped in the water turns hard straight away. Don't worry if it looks frothy as this is normal.

  • Remove from the heat and dip the apples in the toffee to coat. Take care as the toffee is hot. Stand on the paper and leave to set and cool before eating.
