Yield: 1 Servings
Categories: Korean, Condiments, Ethnic


A small supply of sesame seeds should be kept on hand if any korean cooking
is planned. These seeds should always be crushed and roasted.

1. Pruchase a jar of white sesame seeds.

2. In a heavy skillet, over a very low flame brown the seeds until they
turn dark golden. Shake the pan and stir the seeds from time to time. If
the sesame seeds have browned carefully, they will pop and jump in the pan.
Sesame seeds taste best when roasted to a dark golden color.

3. Allow the seeds to cool to room temperature in the pan. Crush them with
a mortar and pestle or in a blender. Crushed in either manner, the juice
from the seeds will escape. Stored in an air-tight jar, the seeds will keep
for months.
