I Have This Can of Tahini...

It's been in the fridge for a LONG time. It looks and smells like it should. Any thoughts?

Please don't respond with, "When in doubt, throw it out."

I have found that when oils have gone rancid, you can tell pretty quickly when you heat them up. Put a little in a saucepan, warm it up and see if you notice anything.

As I only use a tbs or two at a time of Tahini, mine has been in the fridge probably longer than Ive been alive, and Ive had no issues. I just give it the good old sniff test, then a good mixing cause it seems to settle, then the taste test.

If it smells and tastes right, I'd use it.

Thanks for this thread. I've got about half of a 16 oz jar in the fridge. Expiration date is May 2016 but I'm not throwing it out.
Keep forgetting to buy garbanzos.

That was the original plan, Charlie. Before I made it, I wanted confirmation it was good to go.

The solids in the tahini can were pretty thick/hard with oil on top. SO tried to mix it up but I just suggested putting the thick stuff into the FP then adding some of the oil and letting the FP do the work. That seemed to work.
