Like all our sesame products, our Roasted Sesame Tahini starts its life in the sesame fields of Ethiopia. Here our fair trade farmers using organic methods raise the sesame until harvest. With the utmost care and respect the seeds are shipped to Jerusalem and Nablus where renowned chef Kamel Hashalmon inspects each delivery. The seeds undergo the hulling process in which they are peeled tenderly using a salt water mixture which cleanly removes the husks, before being thoroughly rinsed with fresh water. The seeds will be carefully dried and slow roasted over an 8 – 12 hour period using a custom made oven that allows strict temperature control and heat distribution. This slow and meticulous process ensures that the end product retains the nutritional values of the raw material, creating the healthiest of results. Only once the seeds have been fully prepared does the grinding begin. Kamel uses antique millstones for the purpose and over the course of hours the seeds are ground in to a beautiful coffee colored paste – our handmade roasted tahini.
The East Jerusalem Food Company along with Kamel use only organic material, and remain true to the traditional methods and ingredients of all of our products. As such, the Roasted Sesame Tahini is pure, simple, and delicious with just one ingredient – sesame seeds. The product is not only organic, and fair trade, but is also vegan.
Due to the pureness of our product, the East Jerusalem Food Company Roasted Sesame Tahini is incredibly healthy. The sesame seed is rich in a number of important nutrients, as well as protein and healthy fats with no trans fats. Additionally, as we use no artificial ingredients, you know that what you are getting is the purest, highest quality tahini on the market.
The Roasted Sesame Tahini paste boasts a particularly deep nutty taste and texture, lending itself perfectly to be used as an excellent alternative to peanut butter, spread on bread, in cooking, and even in baking, as well as the traditional tahini sauce which can be added as a condiment to virtually anything you have on your menu.
