Poppy Seed Candy

Recipe Ingredients

Source: Lior's Kitchen Talk

1 pound poppy seeds
2 cups honey
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 cups chopped nuts
1/2 teaspoon powdered ginger



Method

Have the poppy seeds ground for you when you buy them. If this is not possible, grind them in a food chopper or pound with a mortar and pestle. Cook together the honey and sugar until syrupy. Stir in the poppy seeds and cook until mixture is thick, about 20 minutes. Stir frequently. (Drop a little on a wet surface; if it doesn't run, it is thick enough.) Stir in the nuts and ginger.

Moisten hands; pat out mixture onto wet board to thickness of about 1/2-inch. Let cool 5 minutes, then cut into diamonds or squares with a sharp knife. When knife sticks, dip into hot water. Cool completely and lift from board with a spatula.
