Sesame Seed
Including Tahini (sesame seed paste)

Sesame seed is the first recorded seasoning, dating back to 3000BC and Assyria. It grows widely in India and throughout the Orient. The seeds were brought to America by African slaves, who called it benné (pronounced BEHN-nee) seed, and it subsequently became very popular in Southern cooking. The tiny, flat seeds are most commonly ivory in color but also come in shades of brown, red and black. Sesame seeds have a nutty, slightly sweet flavor and are often used in baked goods such as breads, pastries, cakes and cookies.

Sweet Potatoes

Hello, Sweet Potato Lover!
The SWEET POTATO recipes have moved, formatted to make pages load faster.

Please see Sweet Potato recipes.


"Baked Sweet Potatos or Yams"

Wash, then cut in desired individual eating sizes with skin on. Let dry, then rub soft or slightly melted butter on each piece, then wrap each piece in aluminum foil. Bake in oven until done (can poke with a small knife or fork to see if soft).

We do this every Thanksgiving and place them in the oven along with the Turkey to bake during the last 45 minutes or so before the turkey is done. That way both the turkey and sweet potatoes will be done at about the same time.

Everyone loves them this way!
