Black Sesame Seeds



Black Sesame Seeds

Black Sesame Seeds grow widely throughout the Orient and in India. They have a fuller flavor with a slightly nuttier taste along with a more potent aroma than the white seeds. These seeds are highly valued, being rich in protein and in polyunsaturated oil. Typically Sesame Seeds are pressed into oils or made into pastes to serve as flavoring agents or in sauces. These flat, tiny seeds have a rich, nutty, sweet flavor which allows them to be used in many different dishes. Typically, the Sesame Seed is pale White in color, but can also be found black.

Use Sesame Seeds with salads, fish, poultry and meat dishes, add to stir fried vegetables, bean and noodles dishes, cheese spreads and egg salads, butter or cheese sauces, cakes and cookies, and butter spreads and breads. Ground sesame seeds make a paste called Tahini, used to make hummus and used widely in Middle East Cooking.  Check out our Hummus recipe if you are looking for a basic, authentic version.

Toast or grind them or add directly to your recipe. To toast, heat a frying pan or skillet on high, add seeds and stir occasionally. Watch closely. When the seeds release a toasted nutty fragrance remove from pan or skillet (about 3-5 minutes).

We also carry White Sesame Seeds if you prefer using them or your recipe calls for them.
