Halvah has featured in the eastern Mediterranean kitchen for centuries. Its perpetual presence is testimony to its crisp crumbly texture, delicious varied flavors, and surprisingly healthy nature. The East Jerusalem Goods Company brings to you the best of the best, and our Whole Sesame Halvah is just that. We work together with expert chef Kamel Hashalmon to preserve the traditional local methods of handmade halvah production, in order to create a final product that remains true to the generations who have passed it down to us. We import our sesame seeds from the Humera region of Ethiopia, where the rich soils and perfect altitude combine to create the ideal conditions for sesame growth. Our local farmers follow fair trade practices and refrain from using any chemical or artificial substances. As such, you can confidently purchase, consume, and serve our unique halvah products safe in the knowledge that our products are healthy, organic, and socially conscious. The harvested seed are shipped to Nablus and Jerusalem where they retain their whole form as the grinding process begins. By retaining the shells, the health benefits of the halvah are increased as the nutritionally rich husks are ground along with the rest of the seed. As Kamel’s massive basalt millstones grind the seeds, they slowly turn to rich, thick paste of a beautiful light coffee color. This paste is slowly and carefully added to natural sugars, and a touch of soapwort to solidify the product and enable the characteristic halvah bar to be formed. The sugar is necessary to create the sensual sweetness of the halvah, but we ensure that it makes up no more than 5% of the end product.
The halvah bar is as healthy as a sweet treat can be; sesame is rich in protein, magnesium, and calcium along with other important nutrients. This may be why, when seeking out a delectable indulgence in the Levant you are going to discover that halvah is the number one choice, far outweighing chocolates, caramels, or other sweets that are so prolific in the west. The East Jerusalem Goods Company Whole Sesame Halvah takes these health benefits to a new level, and ships it directly to your home.
