Sesame seeds
One of the most popular seeds, nutty-flavoured sesame can be black, pearly beige or white. The black variety is used primarily in Indian and Oriental cooking.
Careful toasting brings out their delightful flavour and fragrance.

Sesame seeds are an attractive and useful sprinkle topping for bread and other baked goods, muesli, desserts and fruit salads, as well as Oriental dishes, especially when toasted.
