The female pistachio tree’s roots can run as deep as 10 feet and as wide as 26 feet; she can start producing fruit after her 7th year, and can produce fruit for up to a century. The East Jerusalem Goods Company, hand picks suppliers whose production methods have roots as long and whose connection to their food is as deep! Our suppliers use traditional local methods for creating our produce; methods that have been passed from parent to child over generations, and often over centuries. Our gourmet halvah artisan chef Kamel Hashalmon uses antique grinding stones from Syria, with which he crushes the fair trade organic Ethiopian sesame seeds that have been specially selected for their quality. The sesame seeds contribute over 90% of the halvah bar, with a maximum of 5% sugar added to create the special taste of our unique halvah produce. The slow production method of the Halvah Pistachio Delight bar allows for a full bodied flavor and a finished product that adheres to our core values of providing our clients with the highest quality goods.
Halvah Pistachio Delight is a healthy snack, and a wonderful alternative to chocolates or other sweet treats. Made from entirely natural ingredients, our halvah is high in protein, fiber, and minerals. The Pistachio nut, is crammed with nutrients as well as anti-oxidants making it a healthy addition to any diet.
The distinctive green of the pistachio nut, embedded on the sweet crumbly halvah bar creates a flavorsome pleasure that can be shipped directly to you; bringing a piece of the Middle-East to your table. The startling visual effect of the pistachio green encrusted on the halvah bar, makes the Halvah Pistachio Delight an attractive addition to a dessert plate, an afternoon tea, or as a gift.
