Yellowman is thick and sweet, And much tradition lies behind it; For centuries at Lammas Fair In Ballycastle, you would find it.
To make this toffee, first you melt The butter in a heavy pan; Add sugar, syrup, vinegar, And start to boil your Yellowman.
To test it, take a spoonful up And in cold water let it fall: It's ready if the mixture turns Into a crisp and brittle ball.
Now put the baking soda in-- You'll find that it will foam and froth; So take a spoon and rapidly Keep stirring up the bubbling broth.
Now pour it in a well-greased tin; Cool, then break in bits to eat. You'll soon know why, at Lammas fair, The Yellowman was such a treat.
