Sesame Oil

There are two main types of sesame oil. Both are from the white sesame seed, raw it makes a light coloured oil, roasted before the oil is extracted makes for a darker oil.

I love it but although it is widely regarded as have a high smoke point, using too much of it or burning it will give an unpleasant smell and taste. So please be gentle with it. 🙂

The final product is made using the crushed seeds of the Sesame plant from which oil is collected, preferably using cold pressing techniques.

Raw seeds extracted from their pods.

Even though I use it less often than Olive Oil, this particular cooking ingredient is in PK’s Essential Pantry Cupboard Contents.

Dietary Info: Great for vegetarians,  vegans and is gluten free (as it is not a grass seed).
