We've never made toffee apples before so the appeal of Autumn and all its potential meant this year we had to give it a go.
Soak 4 apples in boiling water, dry and skewer
Pour 50ml of water and 200g of caster sugar into a pan and stir gently on a high heat for 5 minutes
Add 1/2 teaspoon of vinegar and 2 tablespoons of golden syrup
Stir until ready (when you drop a blob into cold water it hardens immediately)
Pour over apples
I felt like we'd made some sort of indestructible material! The toffee was super sticky and solid and unbreakable! But I suppose that's half the fun!
We also made hedgehog homes today. The Boy chose a spot hidden under a plant at the back of a flower bed. Good choice! He filled it with leaves and straw.
Panda Girl chose a great spot by the compost heap, under the hazel tree. She filled hers with leaves and straw too and both kiddies put sand in the front to track any footprints.
The Farm Shop remains a hit.
This afternoon/evening consisted of workbooks, guitar lessons and ballet classes.
