Treat yourself to a slice of this delectable Macedonian Halva with pistachios that has been made in Macedonia in Greece. Makedonikos Halvas is made to an ancient recipe brought to the northern Greek region of Macedonia by people who fled the destruction of Smyrna in the 1920s.
Halva is one of Greece’s most popular confections as it is entirely plant-based and can be eaten throughout the Lent period. Macedonian Halva with pistachios is a distinctive version due to its use of traditional ingredients like honey or petimezi (grape syrup) in contrast to the glucose or fructose used by commercial brands. Our Macedonian Halva with pistachios is a vanilla halva that is swirled with pistachios and can be enjoyed slice by slice with good coffee or dressed with lemon juice and cinnamon.
