Cooking Recipes Catalogue

Sesame seeds are tiny, ivory-colored seeds with a mild, nutty flavor. Black sesame seeds are also available. Both types are used most often as a garnish on sweet and savory dishes.

To toast sesame seeds:
Place the seeds in a small, dry, heavy frying pan over moderate heat and stir until they are aromatic, 1-2 minutes. Cool slightly before using.
