Description
Sesame, is the dried, oval-shaped seed of the herb Sesamum indicum. Sesame Seed is harvested by hand. The seeds have a rich nut-like flavor when toasted. Sesame Seed contains 25 percent protein.

Uses
Sesame Seeds are used to add texture and flavor to a variety of breads, rolls, crackers, and salad dressings. Middle Eastern, Muslim, and Asian seasoning blends use crushed, whole, and toasted Sesame Seeds for flavor and texture.

Origins
Most of the Sesame Seed sold in the United States is grown in Mexico, Central America and China.

Folklore
Sesame seed may be the oldest condiment known to man and probably was the first crop grown for its edible oil. The Babylonians made sesame cakes, wine, and brandy and used the oil for cooking and toiletries. Sesame was used by the Egyptians as a medicine as early as 1500 B.C. "Open Sesame" was the magical password that opened the entrance to the cave in Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves. This reference is perhaps attributable to the fact that ripe sesame seed pods open with a sharp pop at the slightest touch. Late in the 17th and 18th centuries, slaves brought the seed to America. In some parts of the South, it is still known, as "benne," which was its name in the African (Bantu) dialect.
