Posted by & filed under article, recipe.

Chances are good that your summer has so far included at least one of a delicious crisp summer salad, a soft hamburger bun, or a delicious creamy scoop of hummus made from sweet tahini. The humble yet mighty sesame seed was likely a part of each of those! This month we celebrate and learn more about the delicate yet powerful sesame seed.

Their wonderfully nutty and slightly sweet taste, crisp crunch and firm texture, however, make hazelnuts a diverse accompaniment in cooking, in addition to making a tasty snack.
