How do you grind sesame seeds?
In Sesame Seeds
There are a couple of different ways you could grind sesame seeds. A mortar and pestle is probably the easiest way. You could also grind them in a spice grinder or a coffee grinder that you use for grinding spices. Another way you could try, I don't know for sure if this will work, would be to put them in a thick ziplog bag, then use either the flat side of a meat tenderizer or a rubber mallet, whack them a few times to "crack" them, then break them apart from there...

Due to their fat content, sesame seeds will become rancid. Figure about 3 months if kept cool and dry. Refrigerated storage might give 6 months. In the freezer, sesame seeds should keep for a year. Plan your usage and storage when the seeds are purchased. If they are not put in the refrigerator f…or 2 months, the refrigerator storage will likely not be as long as you had hoped. If they are going bad when purchased, your storage isn't going to make a difference, so pay attention to the quality before buying them. (MORE)

Sesame seeds are a good source of Vitamin E and antioxidants. They also have a lot of calcium! About 975 mg in every 100 g! That's almost five times the calcium found in 100 g of milk! Sesame seeds are a very good source of manganese, copper, calcium, magnesium, iron, phosphorus, vitamin B1, zi…nc, and fiber. In addition, sesame seeds contain two unique substances: sesamin and sesamolin. Both of these substances belong to a group of special beneficial fibers called lignans, which lower cholesterol, prevent high blood pressure, and increase vitamin E supplies. Sesamin has also been found to protect the liver from oxidative damage. Just a quarter-cup of sesame seeds supplies 74.0% of the daily value for copper, 31.6% for magnesium, and 35.1% for calcium. Copper reduces some of the pain and swelling of rheumatoid arthritis because it is important in a number of anti-inflammatory and antioxidant enzymes. In addition, copper plays an important role in the activity of lysyl oxidase, an enzyme needed for the cross-linking of collagen and elastin, the substances that provide structure, strength, and elasticity in blood vessels, bones, and joints. Magnesium prevents airway spasm in asthma; lowers high blood pressure; prevents the blood vessel spasms that trigger migraines; and restores normal sleep patterns in menopausal women. Calcium helps protect colon cells from cancer-causing chemicals; prevents bone loss that can occur as a result of menopause or certain conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis; prevents migraine headaches; and reduces premenstrual symptoms. When the hulls remain on the seeds, one tablespoon of sesame seeds contains about 88 milligrams of calcium. When the hulls are removed, this same tablespoon will contain about 37 milligrams (about 60% less); however, the calcium in the hulls is largely in the form of calcium oxalate, a less absorbable form of calcium than the form found in the kernels, so you would absorb less than the 51 additional milligrams found in the seed hulls. Zinc helps prevent osteoporosis of the hip and spine. Sesame seeds have the highest total phytosterol content of any food (400-413 mg per 100 grams) (100 grams is equivalent to 3.5 ounces.) Phytosterols are compounds in plants that have a chemical structure very similar to cholesterol, and can reduce blood levels of cholesterol, enhance the immune response, and decrease the risk of certain cancers.

Once weevils get into sesame seeds or any other food, you cannot remove them. Weevils are generally smaller than the seeds, so you could try sieving them through a strainer. But you'll still miss some adults, larva and eggs. Another method might be to try floating them off in water, but that w…ould only work if sesame seeds don't float. It would be intensive work, success is not guaranteed and the seeds would have to be dried. (MORE)
To help prevent weevil infestation in any food: . Procure the seeds from a clean, reliable source . Store the seeds in a clean area that is free from infestation . Store the seeds under cool and dry conditions . Store the seeds in containers impervious to insects . Do not plan store the seeds …for prolonged periods. The longer the item sits around, the greater the chance of infestation . Weevils can often already be in food products when you buy them, often hitching a ride as eggs or larva. When I have sesame seed that are not going to be used for a while, I store them in the freezer. That also helps delay rancidity. (MORE)
