This is beautiful. I just made the dough, and soaked the seeds as well. I realize that I may have used to little amount of the seeds. It says 16 oz, but by weight that’s 3 cups, and by a dry measurement it’s 2. Which is it? I”m afraid I may have messed up, even though the spices taste balanced. Thank you!! Pamela - QH February 13, 2017 at 9:41 pm Hi Chelsea, I specified 16oz by weight in the recipe. How did they come out? Maria Vasquez May 28, 2019 at 11:48 pm Hi Chelsea, 16 oz is 2 cups dry Chelsea H Merritt February 14, 2017 at 3:18 pm Oh I know you did. 🙂 It just looked like a lot at first, and didn’t have enough orange peel if it ended up being too much, but once I added in the extra cup to the over honeyed mixture, they were perfect. Thank you! Pamela - QH February 16, 2017 at 9:49 pm Wonderful Chelsea! It IS a lot of sesame seeds, that’s for sure 🙂 Pamela - QH March 1, 2017 at 12:21 pm It IS a lot of sesame seeds! 😀 Brigitta Waller February 20, 2017 at 7:07 pm I just made these without heating the honey and they worked out just fine. I believe that heating the honey does change its structure hence the importance on “raw” honey. My favorite herbalists Dawn Combs and Michael Tierra state as much. Dawn agrees that adding honey to hot tea or coffee might be ok. I also did not have honey preserved rose pedals but had lots of dehydrated ones from the garden. I infused them in the honey the night before and added one drop of pure 98% rose essential oil. Yummy. Pamela - QH March 1, 2017 at 12:20 pm Brigitta, Michael Tierra is one of my teachers! I’m investigating the cooked vs raw honey debate now, and will have something in a few weeks – if all goes well. There’s more than meets the eye with the raw vs cooked honey debate. Stay tuned. So happy that you enjoyed the recipe, I like your rose petal workaround! Patience May 29, 2017 at 1:13 pm Want to try making this w/some black tahini I just purchased!! Pamela - QH May 31, 2017 at 4:40 pm Let us know how it goes with the black tahini! des May 31, 2017 at 7:38 pm Approx how many energy balls does this recipe yield? Pamela - QH June 6, 2017 at 11:13 am Hi Des – this recipe makes a lot of sesame balls. Plan on it making around 70, depending on the size you go with. They freeze quite well, and you can definitely halve the recipe if this is too much. Beth Griffing December 6, 2017 at 6:27 pm Wow K posted a similar recipe five years ago. We must be twins! https://catalystforbreakfast.wordpress.com/2012/06/10/sang-ma-wan-stress-relief-in-a-tasty-ball-good-for-the-liver-and-kidney-too/ Pamela - QH December 18, 2017 at 9:58 pm Awesome recipe! Great minds Beth! 🙂 Janice Boymook June 10, 2019 at 12:34 pm Would like to “try” this recipe but that’s way too much stuff for a “try”.. Would it work if the ingredients were halved?? Pamela - QH June 14, 2019 at 11:38 am Yes – it would still work if the recipe were halved, or thirded, or quartered! Remember to taste as you go – that’s the key with these. I like them exuding with cardamom, whereas others may not! I don’t like them too sweet, so use just enough honey or maple syrup to hold the balls together – others may want them a bit sweeter. This is truly a “up to you” kind of recipe. Anonymous June 18, 2019 at 6:45 am Are black sesame seeds the same as Nigella sativa seeds? Pamela - QH July 4, 2019 at 9:33 am No, black sesame’s latin name is: Sesamum indicum nigra. Rae French September 9, 2019 at 4:58 pm I feel so foolish – I can’t find the recipe on this page only a list of ingredients Madelyn September 10, 2019 at 11:18 am Hi there! These sound amazing.
