    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!

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

    This is a great, no-nonsense tahini recipe. Tahini is one of those things you don't typically eat by itself. It has a very nutty, and somewhat bitter taste. Combined with other things, though, and it's wonderful. I made some hummus with this, though, and it was great! I found the book where you got this recipe, and right there it was. Thanks for posting!
