Probably the versitile of all the sesame paste is terms of the shear variety of uses, like in hummus to a sweet sesame cake to savory sesame dressing. Store in a cool, dark place. Do not refrigerate. Like many high quality nut butters, the oil and solids may separate over time. If this happens, use your hands to massage the pouch to reincorporate.
