A white-hot sparkler, fizzing and spitting in the chill air: a Bonfire Night essential. Ever since I was a child, I have felt the thrill of donning layer after layer of knitwear, welly boots and duffel coats and stepping out as a family into the Autumn night. I love the light and heat that cut through the darkness, the scent of woodsmoke and gunpowder, the echoing booms of the fireworks. This is one of my favourite nights of the year.
I’ve written about baking for Bonfire Night over on the Sarah Raven blog, Garlic and Sapphire. Toffee and apples- a perfect combination!
