Tahini is a paste made from seasame seeds.

A thick beige colored oily paste of seasame seeds that is used in Middle-Eastern cooking, both for savory and sweet dishes.  It is a very popular ingredient in vegetarian recipes as it adds rich flavor when used.

Sesame seed paste, a darker roasted variety, is used extensively in China as a dip for the very popular Chinese hot pot.

The sesame oil in the paste separates and floats to the top when stored and needs to be stirred thoroughly before use.

It is becoming quite easy to locate in North American supermarkets normally found in the Ethnic foods section.  You can also find dark roasted sesame paste in smaller jars in the Asian section of supermarkets.
