‘Open sesame’- Tahini

One of my favourite ingredients. I trust you’re enjoying learning different ways to include tahini into your diet. Perfect for the cooler months. ‪

‘Open sesame’ – the famous phrase from the ‘Arabian Night’s’ reflects the distinguishing feature of the sesame seed pod, which bursts open when it reaches maturity.

Tahini is a paste made from grinding sesame seeds. The seeds are squashed between 2 very large (about 1 ton each) sandstone wheels turning in opposite directions. Look for organic tahini of course, then you’ll know all you’re getting is the paste, nothing else.
Available hulled, unhulled or black.
