Sesame seeds is probably one of the oldest condiments and one of the first plants to be used for making cooking oil. A native of Africa and the East Indies, it was first brought into America by African slaves who used it in their cooking.

Virgin sesame oil is mild and nutty and the oil made of toasted sesame has the distinctive aroma of asian cuisine. Toasted sesame seeds will add that unique nutty flavor to breads, cookies, cakes, confections, green beans, asparagus, pork, duck or granola bars. Ground up sesame seed is used to make tahini, a paste similar to peanut butter, which is used in Middle Eastern dishes.
