Way better than the store bought stuff
Anyone else tired of paying nearly $10 a jar for Tahini? I stopped buying tahini at the store months ago. If you buy sesame seeds in bulk at your natural foods store, you can make your own way more awesome organic version for around $2 bucks.
Measure out 3 cups organic sesame seeds into a skillet
Toast on stove-top over medium-high heat for about 5 minutes, stirring constantly, until seeds are golden brown.
Dump into food processor, add a teaspoon of sea salt if desired.
Process for 7-10 minutes, scraping down sides every couple minutes. It will look dry and crumbly, but don’t worry it’ll come together.
Tahini is ready when completely smooth.
Store in your old Tahini Jar, if it’s a 16 oz jar, it’ll fit perfectly. For ultimate freshness, keep in the fridge.
