Tahini from scratch
2 cups raw sesame seeds
1. Toast sesame seeds in medium hot dry skillet, or toast in moderate oven, stirring often to prevent scorching. Toast until just beginning to darken in color.
2. Let cool. Put seeds in blender or food processor, add olive oil (enough to keep seeds moving) and blend until smooth.
