It started to snow right before I went to bed last night. This morning the cone flowers all had hats on.
We got started early on the honey-coated/sesame-covered, almond replication experiment. I have found from past experience, it's best to attend to important tasks first before more mundane matters (like laundry) get in the way. I googled a recipe and came up with this. The next time I will use less honey and even more sesame seeds. I used the whole container shown below versus the 1/4 cup the recipe called for. I also toasted my sesame seeds in a skillet first.
I wanted more sesame seeds to adhere to the almonds but think I will need an industrial conveyor belt with a shaker and a sprinkler in order to achieve that effect. No matter. These are GOOD. I am thinking they will be the perfect accompaniment to a banana for a portable breakfast.
Someone braved the snow to come over for a visit.
