  • 6 apples
  • 450g demerara sugar
  • 50g unsalted butter
  • 2 tsp cider vinegar
  • 1 tbsp golden syrup
  • Push wooden sticks halfway into 6 apples at the stalk end.

  • Set aside. Put the demerara sugar and 150ml water in a pan and heat gently, stirring, until the sugar dissolves. Add the butter, vinegar and golden syrup.

  • Increase the heat and boil for 10 mins, without stirring, until it turns to toffee. You can use a sugar thermometer to check if it's ready – it should be 140C. Or drop a blob of toffee into a bowl of cold water – it should turn hard.

  • Holding the apples by the sticks, carefully dip them into the toffee to cover. Put on a greased and lined baking tray to set. Eat within 24 hours.
