Sesame Honey Candy: Ingredients

  • olive oil, for greasing the baking sheet (see sources)
  • 3 cups hulled sesame seeds
  • 1 cup honey
  • unrefined sea salt to taste

Sesame Honey Candy: Method

  1. Generously grease a baking sheet with olive oil and set aside.
  2. Heat a well-seasoned cast iron skillet over medium-high flame until it becomes hot to the touch.
  3. Pour three cups sesame seeds into the hot pan and stir them continuously with wooden spoon until they’re well-toasted and golden-brown in color – about four to six minutes.
  4. Stir honey and a generous dash of unrefined sea salt into the toasted sesame seeds until they become well-coated and the mixture stiffens.
  5. Pour the mixture of honey and sesame seeds onto your greased baking sheet and pat down and smooth out the mixture with a wooden spoon.
  6. Score the candy into pieces of 1/4-inch by 1-inch and set the pan aside until the candy is cool enough to handle comfortably.
  7. When cool to the touch, but still warm enough to be malleable, grease your fingers with olive oil and roll the pieces of honey candy into small small, round logs.
  8. Allow to cool completely before serving.

YIELD: approximately 96 candies.
