Sesame Seeds - white, golden, black
Black and golden sesame seeds are unhulled, white sesame being golden seeds without the outer skin. White are the most commonly used, and are often toasted to acquire a delicious nutty, crunchy taste. Black sesame seeds are used in Japanese and Chinese recipes, and golden seeds are sprinkled over breads in Turkey and the Middle East.
Buy sesame seeds in moderate quantities as, because of their high oil content, they can develop a stale flavour if kept too long. Buy from a specialty spice shop or from good food stores with a high turnover to ensure freshness.
Store in airtight containers away from heat, light and humidity.
