Sesame tahini is one of those simple ingredients that build a new dimension within a dish’s flavour. It’s used widely in salad dressings, sauces, and desserts. Sesame seeds have an earthy taste and are plump with calcium, manganese and iron. Prepackaged raw food is often costly, so I make my own tahini and nut butters, as they only require a good whiz in the processor and a cool place on your refrigerator shelf.
M went to Concord the other weekend and sent me some photos from Hawthorne’s backyard. The peaceful, unrefined landscape somehow reminds me of the musky flavour of sesame tahini.
