Toffee Apples

Ingredients
  • 6 to 8 medium apples
  • 450g (1 lb) demerara sugar
  • 150 milliliters (1/4 pint) water
  • 75g (3 oz) butter
  • 1/4 tsp cream of tartar
  • 110g (4 oz) black treacle
  • 110g (4 oz) Golden syrup
Instructions

Push a wooden cocktail stick into each apple core, making sure they are secure. Put the sugar and water in a large heavy-based saucepan, with a sugar thermometer attached, and heat gently until dissolved. Add the remaining ingredients and bring to the boil. Boil until the temperature reaches the soft crack stage 143 C (290 F), when a little of the syrup dropped into cold water separates into hard but not brittle threads. Brush down the sides of the pan occasionally with a pastry brush dipped in cold water. Do not stir. Dip the apples into the toffee, twirl around for a few seconds to allow excess toffee to drip off, then leave to cool and set on a buttered baking sheet or waxed paper. Do not keep for more than 1 day.
