Tahini Time

So...I've been meaning to make Tahini for the last few days now but reaching home tired at 8.30 pm or later really zaps my culinary intentions. I already bought 1/2 pound of white unhulled sesame seeds (plus, poppy seeds, walnuts, and black salt) from Crawford market last weekend when I was showing someone around town - Gosh they are expensive!! So what I am going to do is use half the sesame seeds to make my dates+some seed bars. The other half I'll try my hand at making Tahini.

As far as dishes go, this one really is just too simple. Just two basic ingredients: sesame seeds and oil. However, as with all good things in life, no one seems to agree on the exact amounts of each of these ingredients. Proportions will vary widely the more you look it up on the net. To make tahini sauce, just add more water, lime and a garlic clove.

Here's a fairly decent recipe - However, I will be making my raw - so no roasting beforehand.
