Halva Spread with Sesame Seeds

Deconstructed halvah in a jar

Halvah, traditionally, is a super-sweet confection made from sugar (corn syrup in more commercially produced versions), sesame seeds and ground nuts. But it's not usually spreadable. This jar of what the maker calls 'deconstructed halvah' comes to us from Shahar Shamir, a dancer by trade and a cook by passion.

Shahar loved halvah, but didn't like the less than healthy versions available, so he started to make his own. He kept it simple, mixing hand-ground sesame seeds, honey and toasted sesame seeds for texture into an amazing spread that tastes nutty and sweet and very much like sesame seeds. 

It's great spread on toast or on fruit, and even cheese. I love it's texture because it's not too dry or gritty, but amazingly smooth for something made almost entirely of seeds. Enjoy smeared on your morning toast or bagel or waffle, or even mixed into yogurt.
