    Directions

    1. In a heavy skillet (cast iron is best), toast salt (and dulse) until it turns a grey color. Set aside.
    2. Toast the 2 cups sesame seeds, stirring constantly, until they start popping and turn a nice brown color. Watch them closely, or they will burn!
    3. The traditional way to grind them is with a mortar and pestle, just until the seeds crack open and release their oils.The texture should be light and sandy when crushed to 95%. Sometimes I don't even grind
