Ani Phyo has a bread recipe using them, you can probably find it on line.

You can make tahini by putting some in the food processor.

Sprinkle them on a salad. Use in nori roll ups. Use as you would the "blonde" ones.

the black are supposed to be more potent than the blonde..
Was that part of the question?

I Like useing the seasame seeds in Flax crackers for a neat variation in color/Texture. You can add them to any of the many Flax cracker recipies;) use them in smoothies/ Dressings and Breads.
They' re rich in calcium but i do not know the significant nutritional differences between them.

How do I make tahini?

That's a great question. I'll tell you how I make mine. I just get some sesame seeds and then grind them in a coffee grinder, then add them to a bowl or food processor and add a couple TBSP of cold pressed oil until you get the consistency you want. That's how I make mine. If the tahini is listed as part of the recipe I just throw in seeds (that I have ground ahead of time) and then add a bit of oil.

I make mine simply by putting sesame seeds in the food processor and process until smooth.

How many would you need to put in a FP to get it to "turn" enough to make sesame butter? I would like to make some, but I have a large FP and I just think they would "sling" to the side or under the blade and not process.

I think I had made about 2 cups ones, so I guess 2 1/2-3 cups of seeds. I haven't done any in a while and never with black seeds.

Ani Phyo's bread recipe is great, which uses them and she talks in 2-3 places in her book about them and their benefits.
