Frequently Asked Questions

How is Cypressa Tahini made?

Selecting Sesame Seeds: High-quality tahini begins with good sesame seeds. You can use hulled or unhulled sesame seeds depending on your preference. Hulled seeds result in a lighter tahini, while unhulled seeds yield a more robust flavour.

Toasting the Sesame Seeds: Preheat your oven to around 350°F (175°C).
Spread the sesame seeds evenly on a baking sheet.
Toast the seeds in the oven for about 10-15 minutes, or until they turn golden brown. Keep a close eye on them, as sesame seeds can burn quickly.
Cooling: Allow the toasted sesame seeds to cool to room temperature. This step is essential to prevent the tahini from becoming too thick or seizing when you blend it.

Blending the Sesame Seeds: Transfer the cooled sesame seeds to a food processor or a high-speed blender.
If you want a smoother tahini, you can add a small amount of olive oil at this stage. Start with about 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil for every cup of sesame seeds. This step is optional but helps achieve a creamier consistency.
You can also add a pinch of salt to taste if desired.

Blend the Mixture: Start blending the sesame seeds (and optional olive oil and salt) at a low speed. Gradually increase the speed to high as you blend until the mixture becomes smooth and reaches your desired consistency. This process can take several minutes.

Adjust the Texture: If the tahini is too thick, you can add a little more olive oil or even water to thin it out. If it's too thin, you can blend it a bit longer or add more sesame seeds.

Taste and Adjust: Taste the tahini and adjust the salt and oil levels to your preference.

Store: Transfer the finished tahini to an airtight container and store it in the refrigerator. Tahini can be kept for several weeks or even months if stored properly.
Cypressa Tahini, like other tahini brands, follows a similar process but may have variations in terms of the type of sesame seeds used and the addition of specific ingredients for flavor and consistency. Always refer to the product label for any additional details or specific ingredients used in Cypressa Tahini.
