Quote of the Day: So there I was lying in the gutter. A man stopped and asked ‘”What’s the matter? Did you fall over?” So I said “No. I’ve a bar of toffee in my back pocket and I was just trying to break it.” Chic Murray

National English Toffee Day

Today is National English Toffee Day! In the United States “English Toffee” is a buttery confection topped with almonds. It’s a popular variant from the original toffee currently available in the United Kingdom.

How is Toffee Made?

Toffee is a confection made by caramelizing sugar or molasses (creating inverted sugar) along with butter, and occasionally flour. The mixture is heated until its temperature reaches the hard crack stage of 149 to 154 °C (300 to 310 °F). While being prepared, toffee is sometimes mixed with nuts or raisins. The most widely available brands are Heath Bar and Almond Roca. Wikipedia

Origin of Toffee

Toffee is a relative historical newcomer compared to other food origins. The word, Toffee, was first mentioned in The Oxford English Dictionary in 1825.
