About Sesame Seeds Organic

Sesame seed is the seed of the sesame plant (Sesamum indicum). Sesame seeds have a nutty, slightly sweet taste and aroma which is enhanced by toasting. Sesame plants are the plant in history and are said to have been sought-after crops up to 4,000 years ago in ancient Babylon and Assyria. Today they’re used around the world, particularly in Asian and Mediterranean cuisine.

Sesame seeds are high in vitamin B1 and dietary fiber benefiting digestion, high concertation of polyunsaturated (healthy) fats, and a multitude of vitamins and minerals.

Storage and shelf life

Store sesame seeds in a cool, dry, airtight container, away from the sunlight and heat.Sesame seeds, when stored properly, will keep their taste and texture for up to 3months. Due to their high oil content, the seeds will quickly become rancid. It is best to purchase them in small amounts and use them quickly. If you keep your seeds in the refrigerator, they can last up to 6 months.

How to use

White sesame seeds have a delicate, mild, sweet and nutty flavor and a crunchy satisfying crunch when eaten whole and can be used in all dishes calling for sesame seeds. Use it as a condiment and pringle sesame seeds on top of stir-fries, salads, and soups. It is a great addition to homemade bread and burger buns.

Besides use as a condiment, in Asia, the toasted seeds are used to make sesame paste, which is often used as a peanut butter substitute. In Middle Eastern and Asian cuisine, the untoasted seeds are used to make tahini paste.

To toast your seeds and bring out their nutty flavor, simply place an even layer of sesame seeds in a dry skillet and cook, stirring occasionally, over medium-low heat until the seeds are golden and fragrant—about three to five minutes.

Other interesting information

When sesame’s fruits reach maturity, they open up and let the seeds fall, from this process seems to originate the expression (than we find in “Alì Babà and the fourty thieves” fairy tale) “Open Sesame!”
