About Black Sesame Seeds
Black sesame seeds are most commonly used in Eastern cuisines. However, they have been quickly gaining popularity in Western cooking, especially as a healthy (and photogenic) topping. Black sesame seeds have a flavor that is savory and nutty with a slight mineral aroma. They are ideal for adding a little crunch and some visual appeal to your dish.
You’ll want to buy black sesame seeds online, as most grocery stores don’t stock them. We also carry white sesame seeds which are the more common variety.
