I decided instead of buying tahini butter I would just purchase sesame seeds and grind them up to make my own tahini (for my salad dressings). Well I did this today and the my dressing turned out bitter tasting. Does anyone know why? I would rather make my own tahini then buy it-but I don't want the bitter taste (and I want to save some money<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"> ). Any insight welcomed.

According to this: <a href="http://www.answers.com/topic/tahini" target="_blank">http://www.answers.com/topic/tahini</a> the answer could be if your seeds are hulled or unhulled.

Thanks!!! The link was very helpful. It says that if the seeds are unhulled, ground whole, the tahini would have more vitamins/nutrients-I guess thats a plus<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue"> . I did add a slight touch of agave nectar to it, and that helped a little.
