Chinese Sesame peanut candy

Posted Oct 07 2008 7:07pm


You will need


2 cups sugar


1/2 cup white vinegar


1 tablespoon water


1/2 cup toasted sesame seeds ( to toast sesame seeds spread them on shallow tray, bake in a moderate oven for five minutes or until golden )


1 1/2 cup unsalted roasted peanuts ( without red skin )


Method


1,Combine sugar, vinegar and water in a saucepan. Stir over low heat until sugar dissolves. Bring to boil, do not stir.

2, Boil mixture approximately 10 minutes or until golden brown. To test, drop a little toffee in cold water; it should form a hard ball when moulded in the water with fingers.


3, When toffee is boiling, oil a 18 X 28 cm ( 7x 11 inch ) lamington tin. Sprinkle half the toasted sesame seeds and nuts over base of tin. Pour the hot toffee evenly over this.

4, Smooth surface over with the back of an oiled wooden spoon. Sprinkle over remaining sesame seeds, cool slightly. Cut candy into strips before it is completely cold.
