1/8 cup sea salt
1 cup raw sesame seeds, unhulled
Grind salt into a powder with a mortar and pestle. Toast the salt in a heavy frying pan until it shines; remove to another container. Roast sesame seeds in frying pan until they are lightly toasted, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon to prevent burning. Grind seeds coarsely in a mortar. Add salt and continue grinding until most, but not all, of the seeds are pulverized. The idea is for each grain of salt to be coated with sesame oil. Store in the refrigerator or a cool place. Use whenever salt is called for.
