Toasted sesame seeds

Hi guys,

as you know toasting sesame seeds makes a difference, but it may take some time if you are using a frying pan for example, my question is: are there any quicker way of toasting sesame seeds?

Cheers,

Not that I am aware of. You can do it in the oven but you really have to watch them and I am quite sure that it is no quicker.

Oh I see, looks like it's something that can't be replaced!

Toasting them in a skillet takes very little time. We are talking a minute or two max. How much time are you trying to save?

I can't get them in my little town and haven't gotten to the stores that carry them lately. So do it in a skillet. It is so darned fast that your greatest problem is burning them. And I LOVE the way they pop!

I use a spatter guard when I toast them. They pop a lot. The raw ones stay fresh a lot longer than the toasted ones, so I like to toast them just before using them.
