I first became aware of black sesame seeds when I found the recipe for my Peppery Pistachio Brittle, which has both regular and black sesame seeds. I did some research and found that these seeds are very good for you. They have fibre, protein, magnesium, zinc as well as some other vitamins and minerals. They help prevent cancer, improve bone and skin health, lower cholesterol to name a few of the health benefits. They also taste good and look great in things like my scallion and black sesame seed scone and of course the brittle is amazing as well.
