Essential Korean Seasoning
This form of prepared Sesame Seeds is essential in Korean cooking. Fortunately it is easily made:
1 cup White Sesame Seed
1 teaspoon Salt
Put the Sesame Seeds in a heavy dry iron skillet and brown slowly over a low fire, stirring constantly so they don’t burn.When the seeds are brown and puffed up a bit, remove at once from the fire and let them cool a bit, add the Salt and mx well. Any leftover can be stored in a tightly closed jar for a few days. Korean cooks usually make this in fairly small quantities as needed.
