Preheat the oven to 350°F. Spread the sesame seeds in a
shallow roasting pan and roast them in the oven for 5 minutes,
Put the honey in a sauce pan and boil it over moderate heat
until it foams. Remove it from the heat and add the sesame
seeds. Cook it for 2-3 minutes longer, stirring constantly.
Lightly oil a marble or Formica surface. Pour the hot sesame
mixture on it and pat down with a damp spatula.
Wet the edge of a large knife and cut the melekouni into bars.
When it has cooled, remove the bars to a plate and store in a
cool, dry place.
Susie's Note: Blanched almonds can be
pressed into the warm bars for a bit of zip. Traditionally,
the melekouni is cut into diamond shapes and the bars are
wrapped in colorful cellophane.
