Trader Joe's Organic Tahini

This is Day Two of New Products Week. 

I screwed up. I bought this on impulse when I saw it on the new-items shelf at my local TJ's. I did not understand that there's a big difference between tahini (which this is) and tahini sauce (which is what I wrongly thought this was).

So this doesn't have the extra ingredients that turn tahini into tahini sauce and make it edible as, say, a chip dip--the spices, lemon juice, etc. I suppose this is technically edible on its own, but it's really meant to be an ingredient in other dishes. I have no use for it in how and what I cook.

It tastes surprisingly like peanut butter, by the way.

I took it back to the store, confessed that the error was mine, but got a refund anyway.

Will I buy it again?

  1. Well i'm sure you could handle making your own tahini sauce....
    But yeah, as is it's kind of overwhelming. I like this one from TJs because it's organic and a great price, i use a lot making hummus and a tahini miso salad dressing/sauce
