Sesame seeds are one of the oldest condiment known to men, and one of the first crops to be processed for oil. The have been mentioned in many myths of many regions spanning from Hindu to Assyrian myths as well as prehistoric Arabian myths. The usage of sesame seeds in cooking can be traced backed to ancient Egypt, and evidence of this can be seen in ancient paintings showing Sesame seeds added to bread for cooking.

 

Sesame seeds are used in various cuisines. In many Asian cultures, they are added as a main ingredient to dishes to provide a crunchy and delicate taste to the dishes. Sesame seeds are still being added on top of the bread in the Middle East as a form of delicacy and fashion, and they are one of the main ingredients in tahini, sesame seed paste, and sweets such as Halva. Sesame seeds are added to food because they provide a nutty and crunchy taste, and their small and bright texture seems to be almost invisible in the dishes.

SELECTION & STORAGE

Sesame seeds are generally available in prepackaged containers as well as bulk bins. Just as with any other food that you can purchase in the bulk section, make sure that the bins containing the sesame seeds are covered and that the store has a good product turnover to ensure maximal freshness.

Whether purchasing sesame seeds in bulk or in a packaged container, make sure there is no evidence of moisture. Additionally, since they have a high oil content and can become rancid, smell those in bulk bins to ensure that they smell fresh. Unhulled sesame seeds can be stored in an airtight container in a cool, dry, dark place. Once the seeds are hulled, they are more prone to rancidity, thus they should be stored in the refrigerator or freezer.

  • Sprinkle sesame seeds onto steamed broccoli, and to get an extra kick, add some lemon juice
