Well, I learned something new at the grocery store. Did you know that there are 3 different places for sesame seeds in the grocery store and the price varies wildly. A lady was in the baking aisle asking about sesame seeds. She had found some in a bottle.
Do you see the price? The clerk kindly directed her to the ethnic food aisle and the Mexican section. Hanging in the spice section there was a 99 cent bag of sesame seeds. I had no idea you could find sesame seeds in that section. I can't recall any Mexican dish that uses sesame seeds but there they were. Any idea on what Latin American dishes that contain sesame seeds?
I usually just buy sesame seeds in the bulk bins. This is off course the cheapest place to get them, usually. Though I know many people don't like the bulk bins because of the ick factor. I have to say at my Fred Meyer's some of the more frequented bins I might be leery of . These weren't in the kind that you had to stick your hand in the bin and scoop. These especially handy when you only need a little of the ingredient.
****All prices were from my local Fred Meyer's Grocery Store.
So what do I make with Sesame Seeds. Well, there is a sesame seed bread that we enjoy.
