• (Pastelli)
  • 2 cups sesame seeds
  • 1 1/4 cups honey


In a heavy pan, cook the honey and sesame seeds together gently for about 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally until the mixture is golden brown. Test in cold water - when a soft ball is formed, the sweet is ready. Pour onto a marble slab or greased pan. Use a rolling pin to flatten mass to about 12-inch thickness. As the candy cools, cut into sticks about 3-inches long and 1/2-inch wide. Wrap the sticks individually in waxed paper and store in a tin box.
