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!
