    Spongebob Chefpants's Note:

    I got a new Cuisinart spice grinder and this recipe came with it!! A vital ingredient to hummus, this sesame paste is very versatile and can be used as a base in salad dressings or sauces.

      Very good and easy to make if you happen to have that many sesame seeds on hand, which I did. I had to run mine in the mini food processor a lot more than 6-8 whirls to get it finely ground, and I had to add almost double the amount of olive oil to get it to the right consistency, but the result was delicious and very fresh tasting. I used light flavored olive oil so it wouldn't taste strongly of olive oil and I'm glad I did. No more store bought tahini for me. Not only is it hard to find, it super expensive! Thanks.

      This excites me so thank you, Spongebob Chefpants.(Now, that is a phrase I honestly never thought I'd write.)

      Great recipe! I ground my seeds, then had to transfer to a small food processor since my spice grinder doesn't handle liquids. This needed about 1/4 cup of water to reach the smoother texture I wanted, but the finished tahini tastes *great* in my new batch of hummus. My mom tried the tahini and immediately said she preferred it to the storebought stuff! Thank you very much :)))
