Delicious Turkish Tahini and Molasses Dessert

This tahini and molasses dessert is from Turkey which they call ‘Tahin Pekmez’.  It is so easy and fast to make as it requires no cooking or no baking.  All you do is mix it up and that only takes a few minutes and voila it is done!  It can be eaten with a spoon, but it is a very very sweet dessert.  Traditionally it is eaten with fresh crunchy bread dipped in or mixed in it.

The good thing about this dessert is that in an airtight container at room temperature, it stays good for a very long time! Best not to put it in the fridge as it gets hard and not usable just leave it on the counter. When you are about to eat it, just give it a stir, and put it on your porridge, rice cake or bread. Enjoy!

This is a very healthy dessert full of nutrients from the molasses and tahini.

Thick, dark, syrupy, sweet blackstrap molasses is more than something to make candy or cookies with; it has many benefits, from helping prevent cancer to getting rid of grey hair. It is a superfood full of health benefits. Make sure you use blackstrap molasses in the recipe.

The more I learn about sesame seeds, the more I want to share it with other people. I’m an enthusiastic eater of all sorts of seeds, but sesame seeds in the form of tahini and oil are favourites of mine.
