Generally speaking, halva is the combination of a seed or nut butter and a sweetener. But the real magic lies in the process and technique; it's what creates the unique texture that is halva. In many regions of the world, one has to apprentice to become a halva master! Passed down from generation to generation, it's a skill that requires dedication and strong shoulders. Architecturally speaking, it's a fascinating work of science and chemistry. The texture is sort of a flaky, cottony, crispy, airy, melt-on-your-tongue lusciousness.

Delicious and nutritious, if you're not familiar, now is a very good time to get familiar, as this halva contains tons of it. Halva is best kept in a cool place, or the fridge. Just remember to keep it well covered, or tightly wrapped.
