I bought a package of white sesame seeds at the asian market near me. 4 oz for 89¢. Maybe not so great of a deal as I just read on the back of the package:
"USER WARNINGS: DO NOT EAT AS A SNACK. RAW FOOD PLEASE WASH UNDER TAP WATER AT LEAST 5 MINUTES BEFORE COOKING. PLEASE COOK IN HOT BOILING WATER FOR 30 MINUTES BEFORE CONSUMING."
Can somebody explain to me why this is needed. I think I will throw them away before I attempt to boil them for 30 minutes, but in the off chance I do boil them, will I be able to toast them after?
I wanted to use them in the bulgogi recipe from Gourmet Today.
