halvah

More adventures in candy making.
My mother’s really going to kill me for this one. She absolutely adores halvah. Good thing it’s a small batch. =)

1/4 cup water
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup of tahini paste
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
candy thermometer
metal loaf pan, greased and lined with parchment

Pour sugar into a heavy sauce pan
pour the water over the sugar, don’t stir
bring to a boil over high heat
using the thermometer bring to a temperature of 260°F

Pour the tahini and vanilla into a microwave-safe bowl
zap for a minute or so just before the sugar syrup is ready
temperature of the tahini needs should be 100 – 110°F

Add the warmed tahini to the sugar syrup
remove from heat
mix well until incorporated
pour into the prepared loaf pan
even out the mixture quickly with a heatproof utensil before it begins to set up

Allow to rest and cool in the pan for a minumum of 12 hours at room temperature
