Black Sesame Paste - Where can I buy it?

liu | Jun 24, 2007 03:17 PM

At The Kitchen dim sum this past Satuday morning we had green (a little too oily for me, but still scrumptious!) "balls" with a hot liquid center of sweet, black sesame paste. I have had other dim sum items with sesame paste, but this was very oozy with a sweet, deep sesame flavor.

Can I purchase this sweet, black sesame paste in a Chinese market? How do I find it? What aisle is it on? Does it come in a jar, can or foil pack? What brand do I look for? Are there many different kinds?

I'm thinking with peanut butter, on cottage cheese, with Humboldt Fog cheese, with yogurt, with rice, in oatmeal, in a salad dressing...what other tasty uses might I try?
