Mentioned in the Ebers Papyrus of around 1500 B.C. and depicted in 4,000-year-old Egyptian tomb drawings, sesame was highly valued by the Ancient Greeks, Egyptians and Romans. Their nutty, sweet aroma with a rich, milk-like butter taste becomes even more intense with an added depth of flavor when roasted. More commonly used in Japanese and Chinese cooking. Sprinkle them as a garnish on confections, rice, meats or steamed vegetables. Use to flavor cold sesame noodles and sauces as well.
