Tahini (Sesame Seed Paste)

Can be used in Hummus, on sandwiches, or whatever.  Has a bit of a kick to it.

5 cups   Sesame seeds
1 1/2 c. Olive oil


2 1/2 c.  Sesame seeds
3/4 c.     Olive oil

Preheat oven to 350F.  Toast sesame seeds 5-10 minutes, shaking seeds frequently with a spatula.  Do not brown.  Cool 20 min.

Pour into a food processor or blender and add oil.  Blend for 2 minutes, until thick but pourable.  Add more oil if needed.
