Tahini is ground sesame paste.  It is often mixed with lemon juice and water and used to dress Israeli sandwiches like falafel.  

100% raw tahini is similar to raw peanut butter and can be used in many ways both savory and sweet.  We love the versatility, but we also love that it is high in calcium, vitamin E, B vitamins and lots of minerals.
