Strufoli- Italian Honey Balls

These are the little golden balls of dough drizzled with honey and non-pareils that you see at every true Italian's house around the Christmas holidays. They are addicting!! Taste best warm but can be stored in air-tight containers for up to 3 days.

 

History on Honey

Honey is as old as history is itself. One of the earliest evidence of honey harvesting is on a rock painting dating back 8000 years, this one found in Valencia, Spain shows a honey seeker robbing a wild bee colony. The bees were subdued with smoke and the tree or rocks opened resulting in destruction of the colony.

It is difficult to appreciate in today's world of convenience, high tech wizardry, junk food and sugar substitutes, the value of honey. Humans have eaten it, bathed in it, fixed their wounds with it and traded with it since history was recorded. Archaeologists discovered honey comb in Egypt that had been buried with the pharaohs in their tombs, the honey was preserved and was still eatable.

2 1/2 c flour

  • 4 eggs

  • 1/4 c shortening
  • 1/2T sugar
  • 1T baking powder
  • dash salt

  • 2 C vegetable oil for frying

  • Place eggs, egg yolk, shortening, sugar, salt and lemon peel into the well.
  • Mix well, working the dough with your hands.
  • Shape into very small balls, the size of marbles.
  • Let the dough balls rest about 15-20 minutes, covered with damp paper towels, while you heat the oil in a deep stock pot.
  • Drop the balls, a few at a time into the hot oil (350 degrees) until golden brown.
  • They'll float, just turn them around a bit for even browning.
  • Melt honey in a saucepan and add orange zest.
  • As soon as the balls are fried, take them from the oil directly to the honey pot.
  • Let them float around in there for about 30 seconds.
  • Lift them out of the honey with a slotted spoon, placing them on a serving platter, piling them into a conical shape.

Enjoy this great recipe of the honey balls
