Toffee apples are a real treat and one which remind me of this time of year and crisp Autumn days. As we come to the end of British Apple picking season there are lots of home grown British varieties of apples available and what better way to help use up that glut of apples from the garden than with this sweet sticky pleasure.
Bonfire night or just chilly Autumn days are all great excuses to eat these crunchy, sticky treats. They are simple to make and definitely beat shop bought ones.
300g Caster Sugar
1 tsp Vinegar or Lemon Juice
3 tbsp Golden Syrup
I like to use a tart variety of apple such as Granny Smith but you can use any variety you prefer, red apples look good too!
Toffee Apples are best eaten straight away and in our busy house this isn’t a problem! However, if you do want to keep them, they can be stored wrapped in cellophane.
I’ve used wooden lolly sticks but if you don’t have any or can’t get hold of them you can use plastic lolly sticks or even chopsticks!
