DIRECTIONS

  • In a heavy pan, bring the honey and water to "firm ball stage" (130 degrees C/250 degrees F).
  • Take off the heat and stir in the sesame seeds and lemon zest.
  • On a flat marble surface (or metal trays moistened with water, or a layer of parchment) spread the mixture evenly with a spatula or knife (or try a rolling pin) to 1 cm (1/4 inch) thickness.
  • Before it cools, cut into squares (try a pizza cutter).
  • When it is completely cool, wrap the squares in waxed paper and store in a covered container.
