Gozinaki – Most favorite Georgian candy
Gozinaki is made of walnuts and boiled honey. It is the most popular dessert in Georgia, which is traditionally prepared only for the New Year. You can also use almonds or other kind of nuts instead of walnuts.
In
gredients:

600 g honey
1 k walnuts
1-2 tbsp sugar

Step-by-Step:

Prepare the ingredients: honey, sugar and walnuts. Cut the walnuts into pieces. Pour honey into the saucepan, put it on low fire and bring to boil. Stir honey with wooden spoon. When it begins to froth up, remove it from the fire, let it cool down and put it back on fire.
Repeat these procedures three times to allow the honey to thicken well. Add sugar in the end. Bring honey to boil once again, put walnuts in it and stir constantly. When walnuts change color, i.e. in 3-4 minutes, remove Gozinaki from fire. Immediately put the cooked walnut-honey mass on wet wooden board.
Spread Gozinaki evenly on the board with a wet hand or a spoon. Trim edges and cut hot Gozinaki with wet knife into equal pieces. Put pieces of Gozinaki on a dish and serve.

Roasted walnuts

Gozinaki is made of aromatic honey and high-quality, pale-colored walnuts. Before chopping, you must roast the walnuts lightly and peel them.
