How can tahini stay usable without refrigeration?

— Dr K Kimmel


I keep mine in the refrigerator most of the time, but I have a trick for, I use soom tahini, that's ss o o m. Uh, it is the, the assumed sisters, three sisters from Philadelphia, um, sell this tahini. And to me, to my mind, it's just fabulous, fabulous. When I open a jar, Kathy, chef Kathy Gold, and I just shared a case of this tahini because it does hold. I actually use my immersion blender, my stick blender. When I get a new jar of tahini, I just blend it up and it stays blended. And I sometimes do that with other nut butters too. So that's a trick that I think is really works.
