Black Sesame Seeds?

In the health food store where I picked up bulk sesame seeds, I saw that they had black sesame seeds. I almost purchased them, but since I didn't know what the taste would be like (and didn't want any old people thinking bugs were in the chicken nuggets). Can somebody tell me if the flavor is the same?

I use them frequently in Japanese & poultry dishes & find the flavor the same. They're frequently used in making sushi rolls, as well as fusion cuisine dishes involving poultry. One of my favorite dishes from a Martha Stewart recipe - "Sesame Chicken in Acorn Squash Halves" - is what I use them most in. It involves marinated chicken tenders dredged in seasoned flour that also has both white & black sesame seeds mixed in.

Unless you've had "problems" in the past, I can't imagine anyone thinking you were serving them food infested with bugs - lol!!

They are similar. the black ones are more pungent.

I guess we're still working on your reception menu?

If you are expecting an older crowd ... you may want to skip the sesame seeds because of the probability of diverticular disease in those 60 and over (50%).
