One method,introduced the sesame making machine,the forming machine is used to making sesame bar/candy and other snacks.The sesame bar forming machine is mold molding type, is first choice for sesame crisp flake slice forming machine by using two- press and one cut for sesame crisp flake with features of stable performance, reasonable structure, being easy to operate and easy to maintain.And this machine can making different size sesame bars, easy operation and high quality.
The other method,the sesame candy made by hands,we should prepare some materials,3/4 cup sugar,1/4 cup honey,pinch of salt,1/4 teaspoon of ground nutmeg,1 Tbsp water,1 cup raw sesame seeds,1 teaspoon of vanilla extract,2 teaspoons butter,1/4 teaspoon of baking soda.
1. Put the sugar, honey, salt, nutmeg, and water into a small thick-bottomed saucepan. Heat on medium heat and stir until a smooth slurry is formed. Stir in the raw sesame seeds.
2.Cook the sesame seed mixture, stirring often, until the mixture turns an amber caramel color, about 5 to 10 minutes. If you have a candy thermometer, the temperature should be 300°F. At this time, remove the pan from the heat. Add the vanilla extract and butter. Once the butter has completely melted into the mixture, stir in the baking soda. The mixture will foam up a bit after you stir in the baking soda, as the baking soda reacts with the acid from the caramelization of the sugar.
3.Pour the mixture out onto a baking sheet.If you have not a baking sheet, you can also pour into the buttered metal pan.Once completely cooled and hardened (about 15-20 minutes), break into small pieces.
Comparing these two methods, we can clearly see that the second method is very troublesome, and this is only suitable for individuals to do at home.If you want to start a sesame business,you can choose the machine.
