    rsarahl's Note:

    Traditionally called "Gomasio", this seasoning is a staple in Japanese cuisine and is a sure hit in your kitchen too! Try sprinkling on steamed veggies, white rice, on pasta tossed with a little oil, soba noodles tossed with a touch of sesame oil and green onions... the possibilities are endless!

      This turned out nice. I followed Sarah's instructions exactly using black sesame seeds. A small jar of this seasoning costs $4.00 at my local grocery so it's nice to have an economical alternative! Next time I make this, I'm going to use a blender....I used my mini-food processor this time and got sesame seeds all over my kitchen. Oh, and DH and I like this on rice and it was quite tasty. Thanks Sarah!
