They may not be so good for your teeth, but toffee apples are oh so scrumptious! Stick that sweet autumn apple onto a sturdy wooden stick for easy holding and biting. This recipe makes 10 toffeeapples.


10 small to medium apples, washed and dried

4 cups (1 kg) sugar (white or brown)

8 oz (250g) butter

4 tbs white wine vinegar

4 tbs boiling water

1/2 teaspoon red food colouring(usually optional)

      Once the sugar has dissolved, boil the mixture for 10 minutes or until the mixture reaches a 'hard crack' stage. Do not stir! If you have a candy thermometer, the temperature should read 150ºC (302ºF).
