Sesame Candy- سمسميه

Ingredients

Preparation

1
Note: Do not make this candy on a hot and humid day.
2
In a deep, medium-size saucepan slowly heat honey over medium-low heat, using a heat diffuser, to the hard-crack stage (about 305 to 310 degrees Fahrenheit on a candy thermometer).
3
Stir down often to prevent boiling over, about 45 minutes. Stir in sesame seeds.
4
Lightly grease a 9-by-13-inch baking sheet with peanut oil. Do not use waxed paper. Pour the honey mixture onto it.
5
Set baking sheet on a cooling rack. When cooled, but not hard, score into diamond shapes.
6
When cooled completely, remove candy and separate into pieces.
7
Warning: Be sure to alert friends and family to the danger of burning themselves on the extremely hot caramelized sugar.

Comments: This is an Old World candy that will be very popular with your children - and it contains no processed sugar. Although it takes some time to make, the effort is worth it.
