Sesame Ume Dressing



Dry roast the sesame seeds in a skillet over a high flame until most of the water from rinsing the seeds has evaporated. Stir constantly to prevent burning. Reduce the flame to medium-low and continue roasting the seeds until they pop and release a nutty aroma. To test if seeds are done, take a metal spoon and fill it with the roasted seeds. Dump the seeds out of the spoon back into the skillet. If seeds do not stick to the spoon, they are done. If seeds stick to the spoon, continue roasting. Check every few seconds with the spoon until done.

Place the roasted seeds into a food processor and grind until crushed. Add all other ingredients and puree until smooth and creamy. Pour into a serving bowl.
