Tahini (Sesame Seed Paste)
Sesame seeds turn rancid quickly, so make certain yours are fresh. Be sure to store them away from light and heat and use quickly.
Place seeds on baking sheet and toast in the oven at 350°F (175°C) for 20 mintues, or until the seeds are lightly roasted.
Process in a food processor for 3 minutes. Add 2 teaspoons peanut oil and process on high for 30 seconds. Add 3 tablespoons peanut oil and process until very smooth, about 2 minutes.
Taste and add salt, if desired.
