*Sesame seeds may be toasted on the stove or in the oven. Personally, I prefer the stovetop method, it’s easier for me and I can keep a better eye on them so I know they don’t burn. But, either way works.
Stovetop toasting: In a large dry frying pan over medium heat, toast seeds until they brown and become fragrant, about 3-5 minutes, shaking the pan occasionally.
Oven toasting: Preheat the oven to 325° F. Spread the seeds onto a baking sheet, and bake until the seeds brown and become fragrant, about 15 minutes.
