History suggests that the Sesame Seed is the first recorded seasoning, dating back to 3000 B.C. Assyria. It grows widely throughout the Orient and in India. Sesame Seeds were brought to America by the African slaves, who referred to the seed as the Benne Seed. This seed soon became very popular with Southern cooking. These seeds are highly valued, being rich in protein and in polyunsaturated oil. Typically Sesame Seeds are pressed into oils or made into pastes to serve as flavoring agents or in sauces. These flat, tiny seeds have a rich, nutty sweet flavor which allows them to be used in many different dishes. This seed is the toasted White Sesame Seed, giving the seed a nuttier, toasted flavor.
Use Sesame Seeds with salads, fish, poultry and meat dishes, add to stir fried vegetables, bean and noodles dishes, cheese spreads and egg salads, butter or cheese sauces, cakes and cookies, and butter spreads and breads. Sesame Seeds are a versatile ingredient to have on hand.
Toast or grind sesames seeds or add directly to your recipe. To toast, heat a frying pan or skillet on high, add seeds and stir occasionally. Watch seeds closely. When the seeds release a toasted nutty fragrance, remove from pan or skillet (about 3-5 minutes).
these seeds inspire me to say "open sesame!"

These are a staple in my kitchen - will not live without them! I get the 5 lb bag. If I had more storage space, I would get an even bigger bag!
Among the many benefits of these wonders... they help rebuild our bones!
The teenie tiny bags of sesame seeds sold in typical supermarkets? Bah!!
I "throw" them out of a small-mouth jar into my mouth just straight, very carefully because they can easily miss the mark, being not only small but light... I grind them into a flour to use in baking ... I grind them alone or with some nuts to use as a bottom "crust" in raw
pies ... or with some flour(s) to use in baked pies....
These wonders are way better understood in other countries than here in the USA it seems. U tube has videos from all over showing how other cultures use them. Great to watch and learn from.
Very fresh and great value
