The sky that keeps on giving.

That’s so unlike our kitchen which certainly does not keep on giving. We are not having much luck with shopping over the last week. No pumpkin for Halloween and now no toffee apples for bonfire night. Our local store is only stocking essential items. Clearly they don’t have children – toffee apples are most definitely essential. Our supermarket is not stocking them this year. But most helpfully are stocking toffee apple flavour breakfast bars (not very good on a stick) and toffee apple flavour strong alcoholic cider. Actually cider might work for some teenagers but again not very good on a stick.

So the only option was to try and make them ourselves. I’ve had major issues with toffee apples before. Looking good as we had golden syrup and caster sugar in stock. Attempt 1 and 2 arc welded to the pan. Attempt 3 had the stickiness factor of water (even after 20 minutes boiling away).

Attempt 4 produced a little bit of stickiness so we took that one.

Dad I will get the wooden sticks, where are they?”

Oh no I forgot to get them. We can just use forks stuck in the apples….

What a muppet.”

Sorry Son.

“Dad where are the apples.”

Pants I didn’t get any apples as well….. We’ve only got the ones from our tree. They taste super sour.

You are a gigantic muppet”

We could just eat the toffee with a spoon….

  1. Never cared for toffee apples… a spoon is a much better idea! Apples are good in Dutch Apple Pie or occasionally just plain apple slices dipped in peanut butter.

      1. Currently due to the pandemic, our Narberth Fareshare puts a trestle table out in the doorway, full of bags of shopping for the community to collect once a week. There’s items from supermarkets that would go to waste because of the “Best Before”. Last night there were potatoes and today I’m going to make a crumble or pie πŸ₯§ from a packet of rhubarb I got on Wednesday, still all perfectly good.

  2. Lol…Oh dear. I mind my mum tried to make them once and like that they were welded to the pan. As for why she did…I dunno… she was never in to these ‘celebrations.’ Next time you will have to think of something else. Xmas is coming after all.

  3. Love it. Along the lines of when life gives you lemons make lemonade. When dad forgets the apples for the toffee apples, eat toffee on a spoon! πŸ’•βœ‹
