Sesame seeds are a tiny flat little tear drop shaped seed full of nutty flavor and satisfying crunch.
These sesame seeds from India are a uniform and consistent in color and size. The brown skins have been removed (decorticated), revealing the smooth creamy seed core. Their flavor is mildly sweet and nutty.
Use white sesame seeds, whole, as a garnish on top of fresh baked goods like rolls, breads, crackers, and bagels. Use them alone or paired with other grains and seeds like poppy, sunflower, and oat for a multigrain mix. Toss them in salads and stir-fries. Buy sesame seeds in bulk and keep them on hand.
To make homemade hummus, first grind sesame seeds to release their rich oils. Ground sesame seed paste is called tahini paste, and used in many savory dishes from Asia and the Middle East. Sesame seeds are an ingredient in the popular Middle Eastern spice mix, Za’atar, blended with marjoram, thyme, oregano, savory, and dried sumac. If you haven’t yet tried this wonderful mix, you can buy exotic spices like the Za’atar spice mix here at Gourmet Food World, and explore flavors from around the world.
