DIRECTIONS

  • Toast sesame seeds very lightly (be careful, black sesame becomes very bitter if overtoasted.).
  • Add 1/4 cup sugar to the boiling water, dissolve.
  • Combine 1/4 cup remaining sugar, sesame seeds, and 1 tbs peanut oil in a blender or masher.
  • Process or crush to desired fineness – it can be anything from a gritty paste to a smooth filling.
  • Add the hot water and remaining 1/4 cup of sugar and the remaining 1 tbs oil during the grinding process to adjust sweetness, consistency, and smoothness to taste.
  • NOTE: This recipe should yield a very sesame-flavored, gritty paste after 5 – 10 minutes of start-stop processing without any extras.
