Sweetness of Halva

    you forgot the sugar?

    You never say when to add the sugar, which really is inexcusable. And what is a gas plate? Whatever it is, is it interchangeable with a stove? It would also be helpful to have a time estimate for how long the flour needs to fry in the butter; "somewhat hardened" is very vague. (Perhaps step-by-step pictures would elucidate).

    it's great to see people such as eew commenting on stories - shows how culturally diverse they are. not.

    What is the actual size of a block of butter? I am from the States and have a recipe that requires a block of butter. Our butter is measured in cups and 1/2 cups...our blocks of butter come in 1/2 cup or 1 cup forms. Thank you.
