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 :)))

Wonderful recipe!!! I will use this from now on instead of buying tahini!! It is so much more fresh and makes the hummus or whatever you are using it for taste so much better!! Thanks for posting!!
