Does any one use it?
For what?
What brand?
i have the brand: Joya
How long does it last?
I have had the 1 container that i have only ever bought for over a year!
Do you need to refrigerate it?
i haven't the whole time!?

I just used it for a no cheese - grilled cheese sandwich filling...
the recipe was along with nutritional yeast and several other ingredients...
it was pretty good, added tomatoes slices...
but don't know if the Tahini i have is bad... and i had to sub. dry musturd that it called for, didn't have it so i used deli mustard!

I use it. Any brand will do. I make lemon tahini dressing for my salad, hummus, and mix it with nutritional yeast and yellow mustard for a sauce. It takes me a long time to use it and I've yet to have any go bad.

Sesame butter needs to be kept refrigerated after you open it, or the oil will go rancid.

It's just like natural peanutbutter. Once you've opened it, and mixed the oils with the paste, it has to be kept refrigerated. There aren't any emulsifiers or preservatives in it to keep it fresh after being exposed to air.

Tahini is sesame butter mixed with garlic, lemon, and water to produce a tangy pasty dressing. You can thin it out with more water/lemon juice, or you can keep it fairly thick. Or you can mix it into hummus. I don't know where the mustard idea came from, it's not a traditional ingredient in tahini. I use the recipe on the Joya container, but I thin it out somewhat because I like my dressing runny.

I like the taste of tahini. However, on one ocassion I tried to make a dressing from it (with a Braun stick blender) plus some other things (hot water was one of those things). Then I came to the conclusion that tahini's color grosses me out, especially if it's very noticeable on food, e.g., spooned or poured to a size of over 2 square inches. I still like it but I try not to look at it.

I love tahini. I use it to make my own hummus and I have a recipe for cookies with tahini in them, want to try that! I like arrowhead mills tahini or "once again" brand. I do think there are taste differences... didn't care for the Joya when I tried it.

I LOVE tahini and could probably eat it out of the jar with a spoon; the way some do with peanut butter?

Yes, refrigerate. I use it mainly in hummus and baba ganoush.
