This amber colored delight is so versatile it has truly earned the title “Queen of Oils”. The mild flavor of raw sesame seeds is nutty with a delicate grassy note, making it a delicious all-purpose oil for any culinary tradition. Use this nutritious oil for sautés, baked goods, spicy marinades, braised vegetables, and perfectly golden deep-fried tempura. Stores well under any condition but extreme heat will lessen the shelf life. This unrefined variety of organic sesame oil has a mild, yet pleasant nutty aroma that will not disturb the scent of your cosmetic creations. Great for dietary use as well, and makes a superb oil for stir fry dishes and other culinary cuisines.
