Ingredients
  • 6 British eating apples
  • 450g demerara sugar
  • 50g unsalted butter
  • 2 tsp cider vinegar
  • 1 tbsp golden syrup
Method
  • Wash the apples and dry with kitchen paper.

  • Insert a lolly stick through each core. Grease the baking paper with butter and put on a baking tray. Put a bowl of cold water in the fridge.

  • Put the sugar in a pan with the butter, cider vinegar and golden syrup. Add 150ml cold water and heat, stirring gently, until the sugar has completely dissolved.

  • Bring to the boil, then boil for 10 minutes until it turns to toffee. To test if it's ready, drop a small piece into the bowl of cold water. If it goes hard immediately, it's ready.

  • Remove from the heat and dip the apples in, swirling them around gently until coated. Put on the greased paper and leave to set. Serve.
