Homemade Toffee Apples30 minEntertainingGingras XO Apple Cider Vinegar , Granny Smith apples, sugar, golden syrup.
Ready in 30 min
Serves 8 portions
Created By: Hamish Christall

Ingredients

  • 8 Granny Smith apples
  • 400g caster sugar
  • 1 tsp. Gingras XO Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 4 tbsp. golden syrup
  • Water
  • Wooden skewers

Directions

  1. Place the apples in a large bowl, and then cover with boiling water. This will remove the waxy coating and help the caramel to stick.
  2. Dry thoroughly and twist off any stalks. Push a wooden skewer or lolly stick into the stalk end of each apple.
  3. Lay out a sheet of baking parchment and place the apples on this, close to your stovetop.
  4. Pour the sugar into a pan along with 100ml water and set over a medium heat. Cook for 5 min. until the sugar dissolves, then stir in the vinegar and syrup. Set a sugar thermometer in the pan and boil to 140C or 'hard crack' stage. If you don't have a thermometer you can test the toffee by pouring a little into a bowl of cold water. It should harden instantly and, when removed, be brittle and easy to break. If you can still squish the toffee, continue to boil it.
  5. Working quickly and carefully, dip and twist each apple in the hot toffee until covered, let any excess drip away, then place on the baking parchment to harden.
  6. You may have to heat the toffee a little if the temperature drops and it starts to feel thick and viscous.
  7. Leave the toffee to cool before eating. Can be made up to 2 days in advance, stored in a dry place.
