[size=12]To make one batch of delicious toffee, you'll need:


50g salted butter
300ml water
4 teaspoons malt vinegar
3 tablespoons golden syrup
450g granulated sugar
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda (baking soda)
Grease a large baking tin with butter (mine was 11 x 7 inches). Heat

the butter, water and vinegar together in a large saucepan with a jam thermometer

(the saucepan should be larger than you think necessary - remember that

this recipe will froth and swell) until the butter has melted. Stir in

the sugar and golden syrup over the heat until they dissolve. Stop

stirring, and bring to the boil. Keep boiling without stirring until

the toffee reaches the hard crack stage on your thermometer (if you

don't have a jam thermometer, a teaspoon of the molten toffee dropped

into a saucer of cold water at hard crack stage will form brittle into

strands and crack when you try to shape it). Be careful - the mixture

will be unbelievably hot, and very dangerous if there are children or

pets around. Remove the toffee from the heat, and gently stir in the

bicarbonate of soda.

Startling frothing will occur. Keep

stirring gently until the bubbles settle down a bit, then pour the

mixture into your greased tin. Wait for between ten and twenty minutes

until the mixture is set up but still warm, and break the toffee into

pieces. Lay these pieces out on a wire rack until the sweets are cool,

then transfer to an air-tight container (or your mouth).
