here’s real raw halva – and it is as authentic as it gets. i am in palestine – where halva is sold in every open market by the kilo. halva is a sweet sesame confection. this raw version is pretty, delicious, heavy but dense enough to make you stop after a few bites. a great way to get more flax into my daughter’s diet…
(and yes i am well aware that the mulberries i picked this morning look (and taste) far more orgasmic – and that is perfectly fine – to compete with nature is suicide)
On my quest to develop the perfect cracker upon which to spread raw almond butter,
I figured, why not just use almonds? To optimize digestion, I try to avoid using more than one source of fat at a time in a recipe, or combining fats with sweets. So this is my attempt to enjoy almonds without any added sweetners. It has a warm autumnal taste without being heavy.
