21 Oct Make your own Toffee Apples for Apple Day!
Did you know today is Apple Day? Well now you do, and as Apple Day falls in the same month as Halloween we thought what better excuse than to make our very own Toffee Apples!
It’s Autumn and we can’t get enough of spice and all things nice so for this recipe we have chosen to go with some crisp apples from Robert Brand Fruits!
YOU WILL NEED
8 apples (we chose Granny Smith)
400g caster sugar
1 tsp vinegar
4 tbsp golden syrup
Place the apples in a large bowl, then cover with boiling water . This will remove the waxy coating and help the caramel to stick. Dry and push a wooden skewer into the stalk end of each apple.
Tip the sugar into a pan along with 100ml water and set over a medium heat. Cook for 5 mins until the sugar dissolves, then stir in the vinegar and syrup. Set a sugar thermometer in the pan and boil to 150C.
Working quickly and carefully, dip and twist each apple in the hot toffee until covered, let any excess drip away, then place on a baking parchment to harden. Leave the toffee to cool before eating.
