Next Spice: Sesame

Next up on The Spice Train will be sesame! The tiny seeds are one of the oldest known spices and sources of oil, dating back to at least 3,000 B.C. Their high oil content makes sesame seeds delicious but also causes them to go rancid after a few short months so be sure to keep them in the fridge. Recipes coming soon!

    Hi, I just stumbled into your blog by chance. These are great recipes and photos!

    I was looking at the sesame recipes, and thinking it would be great to include some with freshly toasted sesame seeds, as it adds a wonderful nuttiness to dishes. Just an idea. :)
