Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
150g caster sugar
90g honey
icing sugar

Equipment

Quantity Ingredient
silicone mat
sugar thermometer
rubber gloves

Method

  1. Preparing the candy

    Put the sugar and honey in a heavy-based saucepan and bring to the boil. Cook until the syrup reaches 160°C on a sugar thermometer, then dip the base of the saucepan in cold water to halt the cooking process.
  2. Making the honey sweets

    Pour the sugar onto a silicone mat and gather it up onto itself to make a ball, then roll out to make a sausage 1 cm in diameter. Be careful, as the mixture will be very hot — we suggest you use gloves! Cut the sausage at 1.5 cm intervals with a pair of scissors and allow to cool completely. Roll the sweets in the icing sugar before storing them away from moisture.

Chef’s tip:

  • For this recipe, as for most others in this chapter, you will need a sugar thermometer, which will help a great deal when cooking the sugar syrup
