Profile: A bit of a spice leper – always begging to be used but rarely used. It's a shame because they have more flavor than the pale ones.
Sesame seeds have long been used as a spice and for their healthy oil. The seeds are used in cooking all over Africa, Asia, the Mediterranean, and the Middle East.
More flavor and nuttier taste in the black seeds. So they're used to finish foods. Their distinct color also appeals to the eye. Toasted sesame seeds are a popular ingredient in Japanese and Chinese desserts.
