Serving Size / Yield
- 10 C. sesame seeds, raw
- 3 C. olive oil
Toast sesame seeds for about 8 minutes at 350 degrees. Toss them every two minutes to ensure doneness. Keep a careful watch on them so that they do not burn. After cooking, allow them to cool for a half hour.
Once the toasted sesame seeds have cooled, pour the sesame seeds and olive oil into a food processor and blend until smooth, about 2 minutes. If you do not have a large food processor, you may have to do this in batches. The desired consistancy is that of a thin maple syrup: pourable but thicker than water.
Store in an airtight container for up to 3 months in the refrigerator. It can also be stored in an airtight container and frozen. To thaw, place in a large bowl of cold water.
