Mediterranean Halva

Blog e Ricette

The sweet elixir of the Mediterranean, the dessert of the “Mare Nostrum”. The fruity notes and the light final acidity of the Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Modena Affinato work particularly well with this traditional Mediterranean dessert.

Cooking time: 20 min + 24 h to rest

Ingredients for 2 portions:

  • 140 gr Tahini
  • 40 gr Pistachios
  • 20 gr Peeled Almonds
  • 100 gr Sugar
  • 40 ml Water
  • ½ Lemon
  • ½ Orange
  • Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Modena Affinato by “La Vecchia Dispensa”
  • Pearls with Balsamic Vinegar of Modena


Chop the nuts with a knife. Make a syrup mixing the water with sugar, orange and lemon. Bring to the boil until the temperature arrives up to 121°C. At this point turn off the heat, add the tahini and the chopped nuts. Place the mixture in a mold and leave at rest in the refrigerator for 24 h. Once the dessert is ready, we recommend you to serve it with berries and the Traditional Balsamic Vinegar Affinato, which makes a perfect pairing with nuts. Decorate with a spoonful of balsamic pearls!
