Default Bonfire Toffee & Parkin (3) Collection

Bonfire Toffee
Parkin - Lancashire Parkin
Parkin - Yorkshire Parkin

Bonfire Toffee

1 lb sugar, preferably Demerara
1/3 pint water
1 1/4 ozs butter
2 level tablespoons golden syrup
1 teaspoon vinegar

Put all the ingredients into a strong saucepan and stir over a steady
heat until the sugar has dissolved.
Bring to the boil and cook until the mixture reaches the 'hard crack'
stage, 290 degrees F. To test for the hard crack stage drop about half a
teaspoon of the mixture into a cup of cold water, if it is hard then it
is done, if still soft and chewy cook for a little longer and test again.
Pour into oiled or buttered tin and either allow to set as a slab or
mark in squared as toffee becomes partially set. Break when completely

1 Use black treacle instead of golden syrup
2 Add peanuts or chopped mixed nuts.

1 1/2 lb oatmeal
1 teaspoon ground ginger
8 oz brown sugar

Mix the dry ingredients . Heat treacle and butter; add to the dry mixture
and leave to stand overnight. Place in a well-greased shallow baking tin
and bake in a moderate oven for about 2 hours. It is done when the parkin
springs back when touched.
