    Sesame oil (also known as gingelly oil or til oil) is an edible vegetable oil derived from sesame seeds. Besides being used as a cooking oil in South India, it is often used as a flavor enhancer in Chinese, Korean, and to a lesser extent Southeast Asian cuisine.

    Dark sesame oil

    Dark Sesame Oil is extracted from toasted, rather than raw, sesame seeds. Toasting the seeds produces an oil with a richer, nuttier taste is a popular ingredient in Chinese cooking. Not for use as a cooking oil, however, as the flavor is too intense and it burns quite easily.it is better used for flavoring than for cooking or frying. Dark sesame oil is also appropriate for use in marinades, salad dressings and as a sauce ingredient.

    Light Sesame Oil

    Light sesame oil is made from raw sesame seeds. This oil is produced by applying pressure to the seeds until they emit oil. Light sesame oil has a high smoke point and is good for stir-frying, sauteing and deep-frying. It is pale yellow in color, and is frequently used in Asian dishes especially Burmese cooking . It is also a healthy alternative to cooking oils which contain saturated fat.





    Ginger Skin Cream

    We all know that sesame seed oil is healthy and wonderful for us to cook with, but what about its other uses? Truthfully, light sesame seed oil is another main ingredient in several beauty products you can buy on the shelf. Sesame seed oil is rich in antioxidants, thus it pulls toxins from your skin. Sesame seed can clear the skin of pimples, and fade dark spots.
    You can either leave it on overnight or you can wash your face in it. It’s packed with all the good stuff—Vitamin E, lecithin, minerals, proteins, and amino acids, and it is antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory

    Don't do what I did and tip a canister over your wood floor!

    I often drizzle it over some steamed brocolli or sauteed spinach or even green beans, to add an Asian touch to the veggies. especially if you add some slivered garlic. I've been slicing garlic cloves very thinly and throwing then into the saute pan with the veggies (rather than mincing), and it gives the appearance of being fancier than it really is - great reward for little effort.

    Oh my Gosh! what a mess that must have been and the strong smell of it would have been right through the house.

    I grate my garlic now on a grater and dont mince them at all. When I do my fried rice I put a splash of peanut oil in the wok and about 1/2 a teaspoon of dark sesame oil and gently fry the ginger and garlic before I add the rice it adds that slight 'nutty' flavor.

    I like it in salad dressings, and I always add a teaspoon to any Asian dipping sauce I make for my DH.

    I originally bought sesame oil to use in hummus because I couldn't find tahini around here for the longest time.

    I plan to use the sesame oil to flavor stir fries until it is used. icon_smile.gif
