Sesame candy

I put a star on this recipe long time ago in Google Reader, but only Tasty weeks encouraged me to try to make my first candy 🙂 They were delicious – disappeared in a few minutes (maybe because I make only a quarter the recipe). Nice! 🙂 Tomorrow I have to look for another candy recipe. And meanwhile I can say that these candies are like kozinaki with a mild flavour of honey. And they are not very hard (in a fridge they became crunchy).

Sesame candy

Time needed:
Yields: 30 candies
Calories: 85 kcal / candy

Ingredients:
1 cup = 237 ml

  • 2 cups sesame seeds
  • 2 tbsps. black sesame seeds (optional)
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar (I used white sugar)
  • 1/2 tsp. ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. salt

Directions:

  • Prepare two baking sheets (The source recommends to butter them, but I didn’t do that).
  • In a large skillet toast the sesame seeds on medium heat until golden and aromatic (Caution, they get burned very quickly if not stirring).If using both light and dark sesame seeds, toast them separately so the changing color is more obvious. Set aside.
  • In the same skillet, mix the remaining ingredients.
  • Bring to a boil on medium heat, stirring continuously, then let boil for 2 minutes, still stirring.
  • Remove from heat. Working quickly, stir seeds into the sugar mixture.
  • Transfer immediately to the baking sheet, cover with another baking sheet then using rolling pin make thin, even pieces. Let cool a little bit.
  • Take off the top baking sheet and cut with a knife in desired shape candies.
  • Let cool completely.
  • Store in layers separated by wax paper.
  • Enjoy!

Honey-Peach Ice Cream

Honey-Peach Ice Cream

These ice creams are very creamy, with a mild taste of honey and peach. Just we all agreed that next time I will puree all peaches, because those that I chopped became like little ice cristals and were very very cold ? And in the photo you can see what conditions I have almost all the time photographing my creations 😀

Sesame chicken with garlic sauce

Easily prepared chicken with a mild taste of sesame. My family liked it. Just don’t make mistake like me – don’t fry chicken on a very high heat – it burns very quickly 🙂 But chicken was good – baked but not overbaked, tender and juicy. And the garlic sauce is very easy, but my hubby liked it a lot 🙂 As always in my family – the easier the dish, the better my family evaluates it.

Sourdough rye bread

I bake this bread more then a year. But as always, the best recipes hardly reach the blog 🙂 Because I bake it very often and know all ingredients in my head. This bread is perfect. Really 🙂 After founding this bread I don’t buy any bread at store. Or maybe just in big gatherings when I don’t have time to bake more of this bread. 🙂

Puffed rice with sunflower seeds and honey

Puffed rice with sunflower seeds and honey

It’s a very quick dessert or snack. It’s my style 🙂 And the ingredients are only a few. But it’s a pity that in Lithuania we can’t find puffed rice, only in Poland…

Christmas gingerbreads

Yeah, I know… Christmas was last year. But I want to remember this recipe for the future. It’s exclusive because one of the ingredients is sour cream. I didn’t decorate them, because these cookies were for my kids to eat before sleep. And from other side, why I need to decorate them? These cookies are delicious all by them self.
