Evros Sesame Seed jar

90g/3.17oz

Our golden, nutty sesame seeds from Evros belong to an heirloom variety cultivated in the area since ancient times, with the seeds passing from one generation to the next. Our selection comes from organic, non-mechanic cultivation. Doing everything by hand ensures that the seed is handled gently and not bruised, a detail that plays an essential role in the overall quality of the spice. Our Sesame Seeds are unhulled, thus rich in nutrients, and raw, meaning they’ll become even more fragrant once you toast them.

Description


The Evros region has been known for the cultivation of sesame seeds since 300 BC. The beginning of harvest in late September has, for centuries, been a social event for the local community. Farmers need impeccable timing; the fleshy, oval-shaped sesame pods grow in tall stalks that are uprooted while still unripe and bounded into conical bundles to dry outdoors. Once ripened, their fleshy, oval-shaped pods, which protect the seeds, burst and split open at the slightest touch. The seeds are then collected by hand and taken to be washed and dried. 

These raw and unhulled sesame seeds have a nutty, earthy taste that intensifies once heated. Toast them over medium heat for 3-4 mins, constantly stirring, so they don’t burn. Here at Daphnis and Chloe, we love to scatter them over bread, incorporate them into cookies and sprinkle them over salads.
