1/4 cup corn oil
2 teaspoons sesame seeds
1. Boil nuts for five minutes, then drain.
2. Heat two cups water, brown sugar, and the honey until all are dissolved, then add nuts and simmer, watching the pot carefully, until the nuts begin to turn a light brown color. Then drain and dry on paper towels.
