Review: Instead of “Dynasty,” my receipt says “Synasty.” A typo or a Fat Tuesday message? (shrug) I’m not Cajun or religious, so who knows. All I know is that moths and butterflies are a smart bunch for nourishing their larvae on sesame plants. Not to mention that the Japanese are a smart bunch of cooks for using the oil from sesame seeds to cook a lot of their dishes in. Virgin olive oil is great for some things, but when you want the dirtier, sluttier and stronger-tasting oil, go with sesame.
Dynasty Sesame Seed Oil has a earthy scent even before you crack the freshness seal and you can almost taste the nuttiness in whatever it is you are going to fry. Damn, that reminds me, I should have bought nuts for the noodle dish I am making tonight. That makes me want to smack a register! Unfortunately, sesame seed oil is fairly expensive when compared to its pure extra-virgin cousin. Ah well. It is Fat Tuesday!
Rating: 4 / 5
