  • 1 lb Fresh, unsalted pistachios
  • 1 1/4 c Sugar
  • 1 c Honey

Meanwhile combine the sugar, honey, and water in a heavy pan, and stir
over medium heat until dissolved. Lower the heat and boil to the very firm
stage (250 to 256 degrees), toss in the pistachio nuts and stir, then
remove from the heat. Butter or oil a marble slab, jelly roll, or any

usually used for this excellent treat.
