Recipe by Daniel Myers

This is the normal (i.e. candy) version of the recipe, which leaves out the chicken. The result is a sort of "pine nut brittle" with a pleasant spice flavor.

2 cups honey
1/4 tsp. ginger
1/2 tsp. galengale
1/4 tsp. cinnamon (canelle)
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1/4 tsp. grains of paradise
1 cup pine nuts

Put honey, spices, and pine nuts into a saucepan and bring to a boil. Keep boiling the mixture until it reaches 300°F (what's called "hard crack stage" in candy making). Pour onto a baking sheet or piece of aluminum foil. Allow to cool and then break it into pieces and serve.
