vanilla bean halva

We’ve taken the traditional Israeli candy and turned it into a sweet spread you can put on cookies, bread, pretzels...anything.

The best quality ingredients are key to getting a great tasting Halvah spread. Opt for the best quality tahini and plumpest vanilla beans you can buy.

Once made, store this spread in a covered jar or container and store in the refrigerator for 2 to 3 weeks. But with its deliciously addictive quality, it will probably be eaten before then.
