(Save one half of an egg shell for measuring later.)
Add 6-- 1/2 shells of corn oil
add 4-- 1/2 shells of water
5 cups of flour
Mix all of the above and bring together.
Knead well until the dough is smooth and firm enough to handle.
Let it rest for 20-30 minutes covered.
Meanwhile heat your oil to 350 degrees.
Roll your dough into long ropes.
Cut them into small pieces and put on a dish towel until you fry them.
Once they are all cut you can begin frying.
Fry them until they are a light golden color.
Remove from hot oil to a tray lined with paper towels to drain and cool.
Warm plenty of your favorite honey.
Once they are all fried and cooled transfer them to a large bowl.
Pour the heated hone all over the Strufoli and begin tossing with a large spoon. Continue this until all the little balls are completely covered in honey.
You can now arrange them on a dish or platter in whatever shape you like. Then sprinkle with your favorite jimmies.
