Me, too, wallycat. Plus more, Krinos, Trader Joe's, etc. Never done a side-by-side though and I feel like that's what I'd need! An expensive endeavor. What are you looking for? Less bitterness? More pourable? Just curious!
Thanks Karen. Erin, I wanted something "authentic," but I realize that in this international world, that may not mean much. The Joyva seemed super hard to mix and tasted almost burnt. The Eden and Artisana were pretty close. Ziyad was good and it was rated #1 by America's test kitchen. Milk Street raves about SOOM... I guess that brought me to wonder what qualifies as a "good" tahini. I've read that Asian sesame paste is not similar to tahini because it is toasted, but some tahini uses toasted sesame seeds. I went down a rabbit hole and figured I'd just post here.
