'Fresh' tahini ?
Are there any fresh tahini available for sale ? As opposed to being sold in a jar ? Guess what I mean is, I'm looking for ready-to-use tahini that comes in plastic tub, like how bulk food stores sell peanut butter.
Kea Foods on Main St @ 10th sells it like that - Next to what used to be Habit (now Charlie's Italian). It's right on the corner.

No worries, GS :-)
Yes I'll be using it when I make my own hummous.
I bought a jar once but upon opening it had a bit of stale peanut smell, and the oil separated from the solids. Somehow unlike natural PB, I could never stir it to get it to re-mix properly. Maybe it was a defective jar ?
Anyway I heard someone at work say I can get fresh tahini, hence I'm on the quest for some. I'll check out Kea this weekend.
oh, i see - i shall have to try it one day
do you cook your own chick peas too?
for my hummos - i use the spectrum brand (spectrum makes all those organic nutty and oily products readily avail in our local supermarkets in BC) - anyway, yes it is separated - i tilt my jar of product various ways before and between uses (make sure you put it in to a dish before you do this otherwise you have greasy nut oil everywhere in your fridge or pantry!)
