Halva is a traditional sweet confection made with crushed sesame seeds and caramel that has been popular in Greece, the Mediterranean and Middle East for many centuries. A classic end-of-meal treat served with espresso, Turkish coffee or mint tea, halva is beloved for its light, crumbly texture and nut-buttery flavor. This Halva is made with 50% tahini, so it yields the wonderful nutritional benefits one gets from natural sesame paste.
Enjoy Halva with some fresh bread, on a cracker, with a bowl of porridge, fresh fruits or grated over ice cream or frozen yogurt. Or add to your favorite cookie and baked goods recipes for an extra earthy, peanut-butter like flavor.
