Pistachio Halva

This homemade halva recipe offers a delightful balance of flavours and textures, making it a perfect treat to enjoy on any occasion.

It’s a dense, sweet treat made from sesame seeds and sweetened and infused with the rich aroma of maple syrup and studded with delicious pistachio nuts.
