Traditional Scottish Recipes
- Toffee Apples
While the sugar, syrup and butter will certainly not help a politically correct caloried controlled diet. But at least the fruit is healthy!
2 pounds (1 kilo or 5 cups) demerara (light brown) sugar
Nut of butter
1 small teaspoon vinegar
1 desertspoon golden syrup (or light corn syrup)
Half cup water
Sticks for holding the toffee apples (ice lolly sticks do at a pinch)
Stir together the sugar, vinegar, syrup and water and heat until boiling, stirring continuously. Continue on a slow boil for 5/7 minutes, stirring occasionally. Insert the stick into the core of each apple and dip the apples into the mixture. Place on a greased tray, with the sticks in the air, until dry.
