Homemade Sesame Candy

Delicious homemade sesame candy.

Time: 60 minutes
Serve: 80 pieces
Ingredients:
  • 2 cups black sesame seeds
  • 2 tablespoons white sesame seeds
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon table salt
Instructions:
  1. Butter 2 baking sheets.
  2. In a large pan,  toast the sesame seeds on medium heat until aromatic. Stir often and  continuously till ready.  Set it aside.
  3. In the same pan, mix the remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil on medium heat, stirring continuously, then let boil for 2 minutes, still stirring.
  4. Remove from heat. Quickly stir seeds into the sugar mixture.
  5. Transfer immediately to one of baking sheets, spreading as best as you can. 
  6. Place the other baking sheet on the top; using a roller to press the seeds into an even and thin sheet.
  7. With a knife, cut the sesame candy into small pieces while it's still warm.
  8. Let it cool for 15 minutes and enjoy it.
  9. Store it in layers separated by wax paper.

Note:
  • Less honey with more sugar makes candy harder if desired.
