Smile Walnuts + Tahini + Honey = Heaven

Just wanted to share. Yesterday, I discovered that the combination of (unhulled organic) tahini and (organic) walnuts and (organic raw) honey is incredibly delicious. Maybe I should patent this complicated invention..

If you ground those ingredients together, you'd have a version of Turkish halvah, a centuries old confection.

Oh that's interesting, I honestly didn't know how halva (Turkish: helva) was made. I only knew it had tahini in it. When I was a kid, my mother used to eat it quite often, but somehow I never liked it. Perhaps there are other types I would enjoy. Also I thought halva was of Arabic origin.. it's usually hard to tell what originated where in that region; it could be from the Levant (Lebanon etc.), Armenia, Greece, Turkey, Iran or Arab countries. They are often fighting/arguing about it.

sounds wonderful...how did you combine these ingredients?

well, I had to google Halvah, never heard of this pastry before....looked at lotsa recipes...settled on this one
  • 700g (2 cups) good quality raw honey
  • 340g (1 1/2 cups) tahini, which is a sesame seed paste, usually sold in a tin
  • 1 cup of shelled nuts and skinned nuts, such as almonds (optional)
Method:
  1. Heat the honey, but do not boil.
  2. Add the nuts to the honey.
  3. Beat the tahini to ensure that any excess oil is blended, then warm up in a separate pan.
  4. Fold the warm tahini into the hot honey.
  5. Place the mixture into a oiled loaf tin and seal to keep out moisture, for at least 2 days.
  6. Cut into slices and serve.
