Sicilian Sesame Candy

Giuggiulena - Sicilian Sesame Candy

One of my favorite places in the world, Sicily, is home to deceptively simple cuisine that reveals deep layers when you start digging. This candy is a great example. The fact that sesame, almonds, and oranges are grown in the region stems from a history of Arab rule.

I’ve added a layer and made this traditional recipe my own, including olive oil, which makes the mass less sticky and easier to work, and our Apollonia N29 blend for its deep yet bright flavors. It is made from very few ingredients, so quality is paramount; find the best sesame, orange, and honey you can get your hands on, and be ready to taste something amazing.
