How to make GoZINAKI

Instructions:

Prepare a baking sheet or large plate by greasing it lightly with vegetable oil. Set it aside.

In a dry skillet or pan, toast the chopped walnuts over medium heat until they turn slightly golden and release a nutty aroma. Stir frequently to prevent burning. This process should take about 5-7 minutes. Remove the toasted walnuts from the heat and let them cool for a few minutes.

In a medium-sized saucepan, heat the honey over low heat until it becomes thin and runny. Be careful not to let it boil or burn. If desired, add ground cinnamon to the honey and mix well.

Add the toasted walnuts to the saucepan with the honey. Stir well to ensure all the walnuts are coated with the honey mixture.

Place the saucepan back on low heat and cook the mixture for about 2-3 minutes, stirring constantly. This helps to further combine the flavors and ensures the walnuts are evenly coated.

Remove the saucepan from the heat and quickly transfer the mixture onto the greased baking sheet or plate. Use a spatula or the back of a spoon to spread it out evenly to a thickness of about 1/4 inch.

Allow the Gozinaki to cool and solidify at room temperature for at least 1-2 hours. Once completely cooled, you can cut it into desired shapes, such as squares or diamonds.

Serve the Gozinaki as a sweet treat or dessert. It is traditionally enjoyed during celebrations or holidays.

Store the Gozinaki in an airtight container at room temperature. It can be kept for up to two weeks.
