Clearing out my pantry...

In anticipation of moving house sometime in September I'm trying to put a dent in my various staples so we don't have to shift or throw too many things away. I have plans for golden raisins (carrot cake), candied ginger (muffins and cookies) and will probably throw in the almonds into most baked goods. We have three huge bags of rice (brown, basmati, etc)...so we'll be eating more rice, I guess!

I need some inspiration or ideas for some tahini (not hummus, though) - I'm making a tomato and chickpea salad with a tahini dressing. Another delicious salad idea with a tahini dressing would be welcomed!

There's a bottle of sesame oil as well. Haven't used it to fry things in but use a few drops here and there because it's strong. Any ideas which will use some up?

Spices: celery seed and fennel seed are two I'm not sure how to use up, even just generally (ie not apropos of moving).

I have a jar of preserved lemons as well.

There's a bag of malted milk powder (the sweet drinking kind) I bought on impulse. Can't see myself drinking much in the summer - any tried-and-beloved baked good (or other) ideas?

Ed to add: also cornstarch/cornflour and icing sugar, but I guess shortbread is possible there!
