Vitamix Tahini - OMG!

So I started soaking my chickpeas last night, expecting to do falafel tonight. But a trip to the SafeWay this afternoon showed no signs of the Joyva tahini I used to buy there. The only thing related I could find was some sesame seeds. While I have never done nut butters in my Vitamix, I decided this was the time to give it a try.

Put a bunch in the container and blended on high... had to add about a tablespoon of olive oil to get it to a paste. Then added my standard additions to get it to a dressing (garlic cloves, salt, pepper, lemon juice, water). It was spectacular!

Will never buy prepared tahini again, and am looking forward to making peanut butter.

That's one of the many things that I use my VM for, and there is nothing like it! And much cheaper, by far.

Thanks for the reminder. Set a camelcamelcamel alert for Vitamix 5200. Black Friday sales coming up, I hope.

Today I made another Mexican sauce in my VM, and it reminded me of a great advantag this thing has - it grinds up the skins and seeds so fine, nothing strains out! I poured the stuff though a medium mesh strainer - something that would remove a lot of skins and seeds, when blended with my old blender, but absolutely nothing here, even with those cascabels, which have thick skins.
