Homemade Tahini!

Homemade Tahini! created by DeliciousAsItLooks

After searching high and low in my town for a jar of tahini, I couldn't find any! I went searching online and found this easy recipe. This is MUCH cheaper to make yourself, and only takes a couple minutes.

    Searching for sesame seeds & I see there's hulled and unhulled. Which will I need? Thanks in advance!

    Oops! So sorry. I didn't see the yield at the beginning of the recipe when I first looked at it. ?

    This recipe is pretty standard (although this makes a lot more tahini than most recipes). My only real criticism is that I wish credit was given to the originator of the recipe (the poster admitted to getting this on another site). For the record, it's not my recipe so I don't have a stake in this, but it sucks to have people take your work without giving credit.

    Really good, made it to go in hummus. Everything came out well.
