What food stuffs pair well with the Maltese liqueur Harruba?
A friend of mine has several bottles of this sweet liqueur and we are hoping to make it into a meal of something more than just the ordinary.
The carob tree, in Maltese called Harruba (Ceratonia siliqua) has been a prominent component of the Maltese vegetation for several centuries. The fruit beans of this tree, also known as ‘St. John’s bread’ formed a substantial part of the diet of the local population during the hard times of World War II. Carob beans, harvested by Maltese farmers, are crushed, roasted and boiled to produce a syrupy liquid with aromas and colour reminiscent of cocoa to which orange extracts are then added. Zeppi’s Harruba liqueur can be served chilled, on the rocks or can also be taken neat to close off an exquisite meal. Harmless sediment may form at the bottom of the bottle due to the nature of the product. - Mediterranean Maltese Liqueur
