Sorry for the delayed response. I overlooked this entry somehow.

Yes, hulled sesame seeds. If you don't have a vitamix try your blender and run it a longer time, being careful not to burn out the motor. You might have to turn it off periodically to let it cool and also, run smaller amounts of sesame seeds at a time.

Perhaps you can try to run small amounts of the seeds in a spice blender. I've never done that, it's just an idea.

At 4-6 teaspoons per ounce an 11.5 oz jar of tahini is good for about a dozen 14 oz. batches of salad dressing ( 50 - 60 fair sized portions of salad?). I've had a jar in the fridge for close to 6 months and it's still ok. (hope it wasn't made in China).

Last time I looked Tahini could be ordered online from Hormel.
