Method:

Combine all seeds (pine nuts are not nuts) in a bowl and set aside. Oil parchment paper on a cookie sheet, set aside.

Pour honey into saucepan, add sugar, cook over medium-high heat, stirring until sugar dissolves and temperature reads 320F on a candy thermometer, about 15 min.

Add nut mixture and stir quickly until combined. Pour onto baking sheet and spread into a thin layer (approx. 2mm think). Set pan on a wire rack until cooled.

 

Pair with a chilled glass of Ostara for an afternoon treat.
