These black seeds are best after slightly toasting for a minute to bring out the earthy, nutty flavor. Used often in Asian cooking for their taste, color and texture, they are commonly seen in sushi rolls, rice dishes and salads. Another great use for black sesame seeds is to encrust fish or pork before searing.

Some believe that chewing one spoonful of black sesame seeds each morning helps to maintain healthy skin.

You will also see black sesame seeds used in Middle Eastern cuisine on vegetables and breads. These seeds are high in protein and are often mixed with other seeds to form low sodium protein sprinkles for food dishes.

Althought the exact origin of sesame seeds is not known, the Chinese have been using them for the past 5,000 years.
"I wanted to Thank You for the care that went into my last order. Everything was bagged and wrapped PERFECTLY. It really means a lot when I get a note thanking me for the business, and Nate- who wrote the note and I presume filled the order- did an OUTSTANDING job! I found you over 3 years ago while looking for specific spices for a Vodka recipe. I was so tired running from store to store looking for hard to find spices like Ras el Hanout, Fenugreek seeds, Berbere seasoning, or pomegranate molasses! Your fresh and potent spices, blends and waters make me look like a 'rock star chef' to my family- they THINK I know what I am doing! Thank you again for the choices you give to us and for a fabulous product!"
