1 cup sesame seeds
1/2 tsp (more or less to taste) salt
Heat a pan over low to medium heat.
Add sesame seeds and slowly toast, stirring often, until golden brown.
Remove from heat and let cool.
Place seeds in a grinder (or use a mortar and pestle), sprinkle with salt, and grind.
Place in a storage container (glass or ceramic is best) and refrigerate.
