White Sesame Seeds
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.
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.
