  Candied nuts and grape juice, "soutzouki", is an ancient candy recipe
  still being used in the villages of Greece.  The traditional recipe
  is quite involved, calling for the stringing of walnuts like beads on
  linen thread, boiling many pounds of grapes into a thick syrup and
  coating the nuts by pouring the thick syrup over them just as if you
  were making candies until a purple necklace is formed.  You can make
  this recipe in a simpler way without having to stamp on the grapes
  with bare feet.
  
      In a large deep pot bring juice and honey or sugar to a vigorous
  boil. Add pectin and boil 5 minutes.  Dissolve citric acid first in a
  tablespoon of hot syrup, then add to the rest of the syrup, mixing it
  in.  Add nuts. Dissolve cornstarch in cold water and mix into syrup,
  stirring quickly. Cook 1 minutes more.
      Ladle thick mixture on to heavy waxed paper.  Make a long thick
  roll. Pick up two sides of paper and press together to make a fat
  sausage of candy.  Let set at room temperature.  Store in plastic
  bag.  Slice as needed.
