Thanks for the tip. It sounds like mole. They say that oil layer helps it keep longer.

I was looking up tahini onlne and they sell several type on Amazon. I was reading the reviews and this one person said that when they got it they were surprised that it wasn't tahini, but a powder and you had to mix it. What were they talking about? Doesn't it come ready to use, except for mixing the oil into it?

You can make your own from ground toasted sesame seeds. I've never seen the powder. I buy mine in a jar and it is like peanut butter. I love to mix it with miso and use it as a spread on toast...

Never heard of powdered tahini before.

I'll be back Saturday, so I'll pick up some then. I'm on my way to making my own hummus.

We couldn't find it either, but my husband asked the mgr and he took us right to it. It was in the aisle near the salad dressings, on a shelf with jars of grape leaves and capers. I would never have found it on my own. I think it was around $7 for a 16 oz jar. I will be making a lot of hummus because my daughter and daughter in law are going to be wanting some, so I can easily use this size jar. The first time I made it I made it without the tahini and they all loved it, but I want it to be authentic. I noticed that tanini is very high fat, but It must be good fat because it only listed 3.5 gm of sat fat out of a total of 23 gm.

I never liked chick peas plain, but I sure do like hummus!

Tahini is made from sesame seeds and it is a very good fat for you.

When you are putting your groceries away, store it that way. Then it will be ready to go. I do this with several item that require mixing upon opening. Like sweetened condensed milk. Natural peanut butter is another one.

Every so often I will buy a can of chick peas and eat them like a snack. I rinse them first though.
