Sesame Seeds, Black


History suggests that the Sesame Seed is the first recorded seasoning, dating back to 3000 B.C. Assyria. It grows widely throughout the Orient and in India. Sesame Seeds were brought to America by the African slaves, who referred to the seed as the Benne Seed. This seed soon became very popular with Southern cooking. These seeds are highly valued, being rich in protein and in polyunsaturated oil.

These flat, tiny seeds have a rich, nutty, sweet flavor which allows them to be used in many different dishes. Black Sesame Seeds are a versatile ingredient to have on hand.
