|Walnut Kernel Candies|
1/2 pound rock sugar
1 pound walnut halves
1 Tablespoon maltose
2 cups vegetable oil for deep frying
2 teaspoons white sesame seeds
1. Bring sugar and one and a half cups of water to the boil and simmer until the sugar has dissolved, then stir in the maltose.
2. Blanch the walnut pieces in boiling water for one to two minutes, then remove and drain them on paper towels, then put them into the sugar syrup and set this aside for six to eight hours or until the pieces of walnuts are coated with a thin film of syrup. Next strain them until all water drips off.
3. Heat one-third of the oil, reduce heat to medium-low, then deep fry until golden and crisp. Every few minutes, do stir gently until golden, then drain and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
4. Separate them on an lightly oiled pan until cool, then pack into air-tight containers until needed.
