I did not exactly know what Tahini was when I bought it but I knew it’s an ingredient in hummus. I like hummus so therefore I bought it. Once i opened the jar, I realized it’s sesame seed sauce/butter. I thought tahini was a tan garlicky paste with a hummus like consistency instead it’s brown,smooth and oily. It has a nutty but off putting after taste. It ,quite frankly, does not taste like sesame seeds rather like a downgrade version of almond butter. While I do not enjoy tahini on it own, I definitely enjoy it in different dishes. I will be incorporating it into my cooking especially into my beloved hummus!
