You can simply process/blend the sesame seeds all natural, but roasting them in a skillet does WONDERS for flavor.
You will need a dry cast iron skillet or a heavy non-stick skillet. Heat over medium and add the seeds. Stir frequently until they begin to brown and then remove immediately and pour into blender/food processor with extra virgin olive oil (if using). Process/blend until nice and creamy
Store in a glass jar for up to 4 weeks in the refrigerator.
