Recipe

(Ggae)

Sesame seeds are one of the major staples of Korean cooking. Although you can buy seeds already toasted, the flavor is much better when you toast the seeds yourself. It’s easy to do, and toasting them brings out the wonderful nutty flavor. They will keep for months in an airtight container in the fridge, but keep even longer in the freezer.

Yield: Makes 1 cup

Ingredients

  • 1 cup sesame seeds

Directions

1 Place the seeds in a heavy skillet over a very low flame. With a wooden spoon or spatula, stir the sesame seeds until they turn a dark golden brown. Take care since the seeds will occasionally pop in the pan during toasting.

2 Remove from heat and allow the seeds to cool to room temperature. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator or freezer.

Notes

VARIATION: You may wish to crush the seeds before storing for use in certain recipes. Use a mortar and pestle, a blender, or a food processor to crush the seeds. Sesame seeds stored in the refrigerator or freezer will have a longer shelf life.
