Below are three photos to give you an idea of how much product you will receive in each size package. We filled up each size bag with marbles and placed them next to a quarter to provide a clear representation. There are two different photos, one for standard spices/seasonings and one for herbs. Since many herbs are so leafy the same weight will fill up a much larger bag. This is why some of the herb prices seem a lot higher than the spice prices, but you are actually receiving more product.
The third image is of our 1 cup Bottle with Sifter next to a popular national brand found in most grocery stores. You can see that our bottle holds close to 2.5 times more product than the national brand bottle. Plus, ours often costs less! Please be aware some other online retailers only offer 1/2 cup(4 fluid ounces) bottles. We choose to offer double the size 1 cup (8 fluid ounces) bottles to give you the biggest bang for your buck!
We hope you can see from these images that regardless of which size you order, you are getting a lot of product and a very good value compared to the supermarket.
Tahini Paste Recipe
Freshly toasted sesame seeds, extra virgin olive oil and lemon juice comprise this thick paste that can be watered/oiled down to make a sauce. Tahini paste is also an essential ingredient in hummus and baba ganoush.
Level of Difficulty:Easy
Cook Time:7 Minutes
Prep Time:15 Minutes
2 ½ cups
extra virgin olive oil
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (175 or 180 degrees Celsius.)
Evenly spread sesame seeds on a baking sheet and toast for 5-7 minutes, flipping frequently, until golden.
Carefully place hot seeds into a food processor or blender and blend on high until a very thick paste forms. Add olive oil and lemon juice through feed tube of food processor or top of blender with machine on high. Blend until smooth, forming a thinner paste.
We sell toasted sesame seeds but, because the seeds require a lighter toast for this recipe, we recommend toasting them yourself.
Tahini paste will last, refrigerated, for three months in a covered container.
