Sesame Seeds, White, Hulled

Expand Product Info ▼

This cholesterol-free seed has a light, nutty flavor and is indigenous to Africa and Indonesia. It has become very popular in Middle Eastern cuisine, Chinese stir fries and Jewish breads and confectionaries. Try using sesame seeds to add flavor as well as texture to salads, dressings, cookies, breads and pastries.

The expression "open sesame" was inspired by sesame seeds and their habit of suddenly popping out of their seed pods when they're fully mature.

To release the oils and bring out a little more flavor, lightly toast the seeds in a dry pan briefly until the aroma is released. Due to their high oil content of about 50%, we recommend storing them in the freezer to increase shelf life.

"Recently I had the opportunity to visit the store in St. Petersburg, FL. What a treat to meet those guys and be treated like one of their regulars! They were willing to break up a set for me so that I could get my Cuban Island Spice -- who does that?! So impressed with them as well."
