Halvah (tahini & honey candy)

Yield: 1 servings

Measure Ingredient
1½ cup honey
2½ tablespoon lemon juice
1.00 tablespoon sesame seeds; toasted
1½ tablespoon butter; melted
½ cup tahini paste

Combine the honey and ¼ cup water in a saucepan and slowly bring to a boil, add the lemon juice and the sesame seeds. Gently boil until it reaches the soft ball stage (234 to 238 degrees) on a candy thermometer. Brush a parchment lined baking sheet with the melted butter. Quickly whip the tahini paste into the sugar mixture using a wooden spoon to form a smooth consistency. Pour into the prepared pan. Set aside to cool. Turn the candy out onto a cutting board, peel off the paper, and, with a sharp knife, cut into workable pieces.
