We’re Adam and Joanne from InspiredTaste.net
and welcome to our kitchen. We’re making our homemade tahini recipe.
Its easy and much less expensive than buying from the store. Here’s how we do it: You only need three ingredients when making
tahini — sesame seeds, a little oil and salt. Add the sesame seeds to a wide, dry saucepan over medium-low heat and toast, stirring constantly until the seeds become fragrant and very lightly colored,
not brown. This takes 3 to 5 minutes. Careful though, sesame seeds can burn quickly. Add the toasted sesame seeds to the bowl of a food processor
and let it cool for a few minutes. Once they are cool, process until a crumbly paste forms. Now to help things along, add some oil — a
neutral flavored oil like grape seed oil is best — then process for 2 to 3 minutes more
— we’re almost there — When its smooth and pourable. Add a little
salt and process a few times to mix it in. Give it a taste then transfer your homemade
tahini to a container or jar and store in the fridge for up to one month — Or, keep
it out and use it by making one of the most well known ways to use tahini — Hummus. Hop over to our
hummus recipe video to see how. Enjoy! Thanks for watching. Look for full recipes
