Description

This recipe is almost too simple to describe, and is one of those wonderful things that is much cheaper to make than it is to buy, not to mention the difference in quality. You will never need to buy a jar of tahini again!

Ingredients

  • 5 cups Sesame Seeds
  • 1-½ cup Olive Oil, Vegetable Oil, Or A Combination Of The Two, Plus More If Needed

Preparation

Heat your oven to 350ºF. Spread the sesame seeds on a sheet tray, and roast them for 10 minutes, shaking the pan occasionally. You do not want them to brown, you just want them to develop that lovely nutty smell. Set tray aside and allow seeds to cool for 30 minutes.

Pour your seeds into a blender and add 1 cup of the oil to get it going. Once it is mixing, add the remaining 1/2 cup of oil, or more if you like. The mixture should pour easily. Blend until it is smooth, a couple minutes. Pour into a jar or tight-lidded container and store in your fridge for up to 3 months.

Makes 4 cups.

Note: I tried using my food processor to puree the seeds, and even after 5 minutes, the mix still wasn’t smooth. The blender is the way to go for this recipe, in my opinion.
