A delicious intensely flavoured raw tahini spread with a distinctive raw sesame bitter edge made with calcium rich whole sesame seeds from a fantastic organisation in Ethiopia called Selet Hulling.
The farming and processing methods at Selet Hulling are environmentally and ethically sustainable. The seeds are grown to the highest organic standards, the farmers and their families benefit from these healthier methods. The organisation supports local environmental and social enterprises from training in organic agriculture and production to assisting with building local schools and supporting improvements in local infrastructure.
We are proud to buy our hulled and whole sesame seeds from such a wonderful organisation that is doing so much for the people of the Humera District in the Tigray region of Ethiopia.
These seeds are briefly hot air dried in the cropping process in Selet Hulling?s state of the art factory which uses innovative techniques to minimise any impact on the environment. They are then bagged and exported. This brief heat ensures that the seeds are dry that no microbes can thrive. The quality that this facility produces is second to none and the seeds make delicious tahinis!
The seeds once they arrive with us are finely milled to a smooth spread with cold pressed fair trade sesame oil. The sesame flavour is very strong, if you are a fan of halva you?ll love this!
We don?t add salt to any of our nut or seed butters, easier to add it than to take it away! If you prefer a touch of salt simply sprinkle a bit into your jar then stir it through.
Exceptionally nutritious and delicious and great for baking too! Try some to add amazing halva like moistness to chocolate brownies and flapjacks.
