Windy City Organics Dastony™ Sesame Seed Butter Organic -- 8 oz
High quality and great taste!
I love the way Windy City Organics Dastony produces their products. In this particular product, they do not toast the sesame seeds before grinding. This makes for a mild tasting sesame seed butter (or tahini). They also use very fresh seeds in this product and they use a stone grinding method which preserves the nutrients in the raw seeds as well as the flavor. It adds a subtile flavor to my hummus recipes which I like. Not overpowering at all. I contacted the company and Anna suggested that I might use it as a salad dressing as well, mixed with some lemon juice and ginger. I highly recommend this product and believe me, it's well worth it's price when you take into consideration that it's stone ground, organic, non-GMO and it's of artisan quality.

has good and bad features
the taste is very good, but it is very liquid. I wish it was thicker. I bought it because it was the only one Vitacost sold that was made with unroasted sesame seeds, and I will buy it again unless they get another brand made with unroasted seeds.

Appreciate the Quality
I bought this based on reviews and found the quality to be excellent. I always appreciate a small company that sets out to make a quality product without sacrificing for the bottom line: profit.
You pay more for this product than many others of the same, but it was worth it to me.
I hope this company continues to make a fresh, quality product and does not compromise like so many other businesses do.

This tahini is raw, organic, and tastes great! I had been looking for some time for this. Glad I found it, and I'll be getting more. It works great in tahini cookies or just off the spoon. Thanks for carrying this product.

Great quality! It's RAW too!!!
I REALLY wish they could get the price down though. ...please??
How about you make it a Vitacost brand product to cut costs?
