Roasted Walnuts with Honey & Sesame Seeds

Use of fresh or Walnuts that have gone slightly off, Sesame Seeds, Honey or Agave Nectar to create a handy and easy snack to have on hand for those times or days when you need something to snack on.

I have made this not too syrupy and just enough to coat all the walnuts instead of leaving a residue of gooey sweet syrup pooling at the bottom.
