2. Then add the sugar, syrup and vinegar.
3. Stir until the sugar has melted.
4. Boil, without stirring, until a little of the toffee becomes crisp and brittle if put into cold water.
5. Then add the baking soda, which will make it foam up; stir again, the pour onto a greased marble slab or a cold dish.

It can be poured into a greased tin, and cut into squares if preferred.
