The Zrir is a traditional confectionery made from roasted sesame seeds, honey, and dried fruits such as almonds, walnuts, or peanuts. This Tunisian specialty is often consumed during religious or family celebrations, particularly during Ramadan.
The sesame seeds are first roasted and then mixed with hot honey and dried fruits. The mixture is then pressed into molds to obtain various geometric shapes, often in the form of diamonds.
Tunisian zrir is not only delicious but also considered an energizing and nutritious food due to the richness of the ingredients used. In addition to being a tasty treat, zrir is also an important symbol of Tunisian culture and its culinary heritage.
