Derived from flowering plants that grow wild throughout Asian and the Middle East, this oil-rich seed enhances a depth of flavor reminiscent of roasted nuts. Use these seeds to stud your bread for a flavorful topping, or to border your sushi. Toast and mix with rice pilaf or couscous and fruit dishes for a soft touch of nuttiness. Many Indian desserts include the combination of white sesame seeds with honey or sugar. In Caribbean cuisine, there's also a traditional brittle bar, similar to peanut brittle, that will crack against the bite of your teeth while oozing delectable sweetness.
