8 green eating apples
450g granulated sugar
3tbs golden syrup
8 lolly sticks
Wash and dry the apples removing any stalks. Insert the lolly stick into the stalk end of the apple.
Measure the sugar, syrup and water into a large heavy bottomed pan and stir over a low heat until the sugar has melted. Bring to the boil and cook without stirring until the mixture starts to caramelise (154C).
Draw the pan off the heat and dip the apples, tilting the pan to cover. Place the apples on a buttered ANTA serving dish to harden.
