Taragon Tahini Yogurt

KrissyWats | Jan 11, 200502:09 PM

No, not together (although...hmmm) but I have three seperate questions:

1) I go through spice/herb phases and right now I'm big on taragon. I've been using it a lot on chicken and I added it to a beef stew but I'm looking for other uses. I can't imagine why I wasn't in love with this herb before, but now I'm addicted. Any favorite recipes?

2) How the %$#* do you get sesame tahini out of the can? I love tahini dip/dressing that I make with yogurt, garlic, lemon, salt but every time I buy tahini (the orange and brown can is all that's available at my grocery store) it is clumped on the bottom of the can and I spill half of the oil just trying to incorporate it. Right now I have a can of oil, with a big lump of tahini in the middle around a spoon, sort of hoping it will work it's way into a thinner paste. Any ideas?

3) I had a bunch of extra yogurt that was almost to it's expiration date so I am currently draining it into a yogurt cheese. Any thoughts on what to do with it?
