Does anyone have a Halvah recipe? I've never made it before but think a raw version would be wonderful!
Thank you in advance for any ideas! :)

this is from a post i read earlier from sweetgoddess:
halvah, which is 1 cup raw tahini, 1 and a half Tbsp raw carob and raw honey or agave nectar to taste, sometimes I add vanilla. Spread in a dish and chill so it firms a bit.
hth! it sounds quite yummy :)

Recipe sounds great. Where do you get the raw carob? Wild oats sells only the roasted carob.

Thank you so much haresmum, I'd forgotten that sweetgoddess mentioned eating halvah in her journal. That recipe looks great, thank you for posting it!
And rootstotoot, I got my raw carob at a store chain here on the west coast called Central Market. They have a wonderful bulk food section and the raw carob is so nice and fresh!
Also Alissa sells raw carob on her site, I've heard others say it is wonderful. I will order some when I run out of the supply I have now.

you will probably have to order it online. the only place that i can get it here in the 4th largest city in the nation? my co-op! sad, i know.
but, thank god for that....b/c there are many things i get there that can't be found elsewhere.
if you have a co-op.....see if they can order it for you, or start carrying it. it might be cheaper than ordering on your own.
