Don’t buy Tahini again! It’s so easy to make! We love making middle eastern foods like hummus. We purchase raw sesame seeds at our local bulk food for $1-2/lb.
- 5 cups sesame seeds
- 1 1/2 cups oil (olive,canola,or mixture)
- salt to taste, if desired.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Toast sesame seeds, stirring often, till they start to smell toasty.
Cool for 20 minutes.
Pour sesame seeds into a food processor and add oil. Blend for 2 minutes. Check for consistency. Tahini should be thick but pourable. Add salt if desired. Taste.
Yield: 4 cups
Store in refrigerator in a tightly closed container. It will keep for up to 3 months.
