I use a fine mesh laundry bag to wash the sesame seeds, if you have a better tool, it would be better.
In the past, I used a non-stick pan, which is too small to stir the sesame seeds, so I tried to use an ordinary iron pan and found that it takes half the time to boil the sugar.
If you don’t like the taste of milk, replace the butter with an unflavored oil (olive oil/sunflower oil).

How to make brown sugar butter and sesame candy
Stir fry the sesame seeds, rinse the sesame seeds to consider the water, in order to fry in a wok. Remove the shells and crush the walnuts, toast them in the oven. Mix the sesame seeds, walnuts and cranberries together and keep them in the oven.
Add the brown sugar, butter, water and maltose into the pan and stir after the brown sugar melts, stirring constantly over low heat.
Use a thermometer to measure the syrup temperature, the thermometer needle is not next to the bottom of the pot, or inaccurate measurement, the syrup temperature boiled to 125-130 ° off the fire, to 126 ° should pay attention, the back of the heat soon, do not boil over, temperature boiled too high to make the sugar cut out will be broken.
Immediately pour the sesame seeds into the syrup, toss well to coat the sesame seeds with the syrup, mix quickly, mix well and then pour into a baking tray lined with parchment paper to shape, after the sugar is not too hot, you can cut into pieces, and do not wait until it is too cold, too cold will crumble.
Once cut, it can be bagged and sealed to keep at room temperature in winter and refrigerated in summer.
