About Sesame Salt

Sesame salt is a tasty alternate for butter on popcorn, cooked grains, baked potatoes, or steamed vegetables.

Make your own sesame salt. Have at the ready, 1/2 cup unhulled sesame seeds and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Toast the sesame seeds in a dry skillet over medium heat. Stir constantly until the seeds begin to pop and brown slightly. This should take about 5 minutes. Transfer to a blender. Add salt and grind into a uniform powder. Transfer to an airtight container. Store in refrigerator.

One tablespoons of home made sesame salt contains 52 calories, 4.5g fat, 0.6g saturated fat, 1.6g protein, only 0.1g sugar, 1.1g fiber and 148mg sodium. There is no cholesterol.
