I peeled off the safety seal to a brand new jar of Arrow Mills organic tahini (not to expire until Nov.) and added a giant spoonful to a "creamy" veggie soup for extra creaminess. then i noticed that the soup tasted oddly bitter. Turns out it was the tahini that was bitter. since the jar is just freshly opened and not yet expired, I'm assuming that it's just the brand that's bad. Does anyone have a recommendation for a brand of tahini that isn't so bitter? I've never used tahini in cooking before today, but I've had it premade stuffs and it's never been bitter before. help meee. I had dreams of making hummus. :( there's a can of chickpeas in my cupboard and a lemon in my fridge. don't let a bad jar of tahini keep the destined couple apart!
