How to Make Tahini

IMG_0263

Totally inspired to DIY, I hit up my food processor to make tahini! It could not any easier. I am absolutely loving knocking things off my list to buy. So instead of buying someone else’s processed stuff in a jar, I can make my own, perfectly unadulterated fresh tahini.

The whole thing took about 10 minutes. The sesame seeds go through stages – they kind of look crumbly and the pasty and eventually like tahini. My processor has a built in scraper so I scraped down the sides a few times. If yours doesn’t, stop it and scrape down the sides. I stopped mine anyway to let the motor rest because it got a bit hot. That is normal. Just watch the seeds transform and work it until it looks like tahini.

Makes about 11oz. using an18 oz. bag of organic white sesame seeds

Pour into food processor. Let it rip until smooth and creamy. Transfer into a container and store in the refrigerator. Enjoy!
