I admit. I am obsessed with all things sesame and that of course includes sesame seeds.

As with other nuts and seeds, I store sesame seeds in a glass jar in the refrigerator. Sesame seeds come in the standard beige that we are used to seeing, as well as a black variety. They can be toasted to increase their nutty flavor.

Sesame seeds are high in calcium and rich in healthy fats. I like to use sesame seeds in my Sesame Salmon Burgers, Sesame Cookies, Sesame Crackers, Sesame Truffles, Sesame Dip, and Nutty Bread.
