WHITE SESAME SEEDS
The magical phrase “Open sesame” refers to the actual sesame seed that pops open when ripe! These white sesame seeds have been hulled, with their brown tan outer-skin removed. They are gluten free and can be used whole, roasted or blended in sweet and savoury dishes for their rich, nutty and slightly bitter flavour.
