Japanese Sesame Grinder

Japanese Sesame GrinderThis sesame seed grinder from Japan is a great kitchen tool!  It can also be used as a sea-salt grinder, or you can combine sesame and salt to make Gomashio, a traditional Japanese seasoning of ground sesame and salt.  You can purchase one here.

As you can see, we like to combine black and white sesame seeds for a nice color and flavor contrast.

Sesame seeds are incredibly healthful.  They are a great source of iron, magnesium and calcium, as well as vitamins B and E.  Sesame is widely used in cuisines all around the world, and is one of my personal favorite “universal staples”.  In Hindu mythology the sesame seed represents immortality.

I like to grind it over salads and soups, and Japanese dishes.
