Tahini Confection with Orange reflects very commendable efforts of Halvas Drapetsonas. It seems that masters of this Greek workshop not only rely on the proven traditional recipes, but they also try to invent something novel in realm of tahini treats. Therefore I am sure that Tahini Confection with Orange should please all those who seek for some unusual halva.
This dessert was slighty flavoured with orange juice and enriched with pieces of candied orange, so it had some sourness which complemented general bittersweet taste. Every slice of this halva meant a real relish, I only wished it could have been not so sweet and less oily. The texture was quite soft, but with some hard layers of candied orange. Harder to cut, but in a way more extraordinary.
However, let‘s return to the main point that Tahini Confection with Orange was something good and somewhat new. I think you should definitely taste it!
