Providing I don't eat it all, obviously.

And, if you know the answer to that, do you have a tried and tested recipe? I have found a few but would like to know that it works before I give it a go. I wanted to make it for xmas presents but have to send it overseas so will need to make it at the end of November.

I use this recipe from the web -


it's delicious and never lasts long in our house - so can't help with the storage.

It really doesn't taste so nice (and the texture isn't so good) after a week or so.

1lb granulated sugar
2 oz butter
1 tbs golden syrup
1/4 pint milk
vanilla essence

Put all but essence into a thick saucepan over a low heat, mixing all the time wih a wooden spoon. Bring to boil and cook, still stirring for around 10 minutes. Test by putting a small spoonful into a saucer of cold water - if the mixture can form into a soft ball it is ready. Take off heat and beat in opposite direction to the way you stirred in before(honestly - this is what I was taught!) and add a little vanilla essence. Continue until you can sense that the mixture is forming grains - you can hear and feel this!
Pour into a greased 7" square pan. Mark into squares when firm.

Only a week? Oh no, that's not long enough. I was really hoping for 4. Argh.
