Sesame Crunch!

Have you ever heard about SESAME CRUNCH?
My grandma always greeted me with sesame crunch whenever I visited her house. She harvested her own sesame seeds and made me healthy and delicious sesame crunch.

My grandma past away ten years ago. It is so sad that I can't taste her sesame crunch anymore. I tried to make one just like her. I tried so hard to remember her sesame crunch, but I failed to make one like her. It still tastes good, though.

Let me share my SESAME CRUNCH recipe!

First, get some sesame seeds from the markets.
Ottogi roasted sesame seeds are cleaned through a strict process. They taste good and have a flavorful and aromatic scent.

Ingredients:

  • Sesame 100g
  • Various nuts (Pumpkin seeds and peanuts)
  • Sugar 3 Tbsp
  • Corn Syrup (or Rice Syrup) 6 Tbsp
  • Water 1.5 Tbsp

1

Roast sesame seeds in the dry pan. Do not put any oil.

2

Add the pumpkin seeds and peanuts into the pan.
Roast them until they are completely dried.

3

Add 3 Tbsp of sugar, 6 Tbsp of Corn Syrup, and 1.5 Tbsp of water into another pan.
Stir and mix them well over low heat.
Heat the syrup until sugar is all melted.

4

Now, add roasted sesame seeds and nuts into the pan with syrup.
Mix them well over low heat.
It is ready to be cooled and shaped.

5

Spread the mixture onto the cooking paper.
Use the rolling pin to make the mixture thin and even.
Let it cool for 5 minutes.

6

Cut the sesame crunch as you like it.

7

Taste your own sesame crunch with a cup of tea or coffee.
Hmmm~ sweet!
FYI, I recommend you to make sesame crunch thinner than I did.
My teeth hurt a little 😆
