Classically, sesame seeds can be used to make tahini (blended sesame seeds), which can be kept in the refrigerator for weeks. You can add differing dried spices to tahini for themed flavors, such as basil and fennel powder for an Italian spin; mesquite and cayenne for a tex mex spin; or garlic powder and oregano for a Greek spin.
