Method 1: Cooking in Skillet
Put the sesame seeds into a fine mesh strainer and rinse with cold water washing away any dust or grit. Toss gently to remove any remaining water.
Transfer the sesame seeds to a skillet. Cook over Medium Low heat stirring frequently for 5-7 minutes or until the sesame seeds are lightly golden.
Transfer to a plate and allow to cool for a 10 minutes.
Store in an air-tight container. The roasted sesame seeds are good for up to 6 months.
Method 2: Toasting in an Oven
After washing the sesames seeds, transfer to a cookie sheet and spread out into a thin layer.
Bake in the oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 12-15 minutes. Stir the sesame seeds every 5 minutes for even toasting.
Watch the seeds carefully around the 12 minute mark as seeds can turn brown and burn very quickly.

Tools I Love and Use in My Kitchen
I roasted unhulled organic sesame seeds, cooled the seeds to a warm temperature and ground them in my Vitamix for an outstanding tahini. Rich in flavor and smooth as silk.
We can buy small scale of baking powder. The problem is there is no expiration date. Your tip will a good help. Thanks to that. I also bought ready toasted sesame seeds. Sometimes it smells old oil. So much thanks for the two tips which I isually used for my cooking
