“Did you treat your Mary Anne to Yellow Man, at the Lammas Fair, O?”

Lammas is the harvest festival celebrated in August and Yellow Man is a yellow, brittle toffee that is traditionally served at the Lammas Fair held in Co. Antrim.

My French-Canadian/Irish mom use to make this for us... it's wonderful.

Method:

Stove Top

Ingredients

1
oz butter
8
oz brown sugar
1
lb golden syrup
1
dessert spoon water
1
teaspoon vinegar
1
teaspoon bicarbonate of soda

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Melt the butter in a saucepan, and then add the sugar, golden syrup, water and vinegar.
2
Stir until all the ingredients are melted, then boil until the mixture reaches the ‘hard crack’ stage 290 degrees F.
3
This can be tested by dropping a little of the mixture into cold water, leaving for a moment, and then picking it up between the finger and thumb.

When the finger and thumb are separated, the thread formed between them should break sharply.
4
Stir in the bicarbonate of soda, when the mixture foams up pour onto a greased, heatproof tray, turning in the edges with a palette knife.
5
When cool enough to handle, pull with buttered hands until pale in color.
6
When completely hardened, break into rough pieces.
