      This was great. I actually used sesame oil instead of peanut - but it was fine. Thanks very much!

      I could not locate jarred tahini in my grocery store, so I found this recipe and it is great. I made hummus using this tahini and it turned out delicious. Thanks for a great recipe that saves me money and works perfectly!
