Place sugar, butter and remaining ingredients into a stainless steel saucepan and bring to the boil. Reduce heat to a gentle simmer, insert a candy thermometer and continue to cook until toffee reaches a temperature of 160oC. Remove from heat and pour into patty cases or into a greased slice tin.

As a child, we spent an afternoon at an "aunts" place. She too, had children the same ages as myself, and siblings. We were allowed to make toffee. Unfortuately, the toffee burned, and my mother beat me in front of all the other children. She made me scrub the pot with cold water and a goldilocks until my hands were raw and bleedning, and tears rolling down my face.
I have never made toffee.
So, my question is - before I make toffee, what is the best way to clean up?

I have not made toffee since I was a child (no beatings...)but I'd say the first thing is don't burn it!Any burnt pot is hard to clean.

The pot should then just clean in the normal way with perhaps a soak first.
