I proceeded to make a great batch of hummus using this. It lends just the right elusive note; a top-notch tahini is the only way to achieve that. A 16-ounce jar really isn't too much though it should be kept refrigerated as anything with high oil content and no preservatives is in danger of becoming rancid, especially in higher temperatures. Somehow the level of tahini in the jar is already lower than one batch of hummus should render it. Could it be that I am taste-testing it rather frequently? If you want to know, it does have a peanut butter consistency but of course a sesame taste.
And finally, if you're worried about Amazon shipping a glass jar, you should know that some conscientious employee completely encased mine in bubble wrap, which was secured with tape. And there was packing material in the box. So barring a train wreck, this stood a great chance of getting to its destination intact. Which it did.
Fabulous, amazingly good tahini - what everybody else said:
The taste, texture, creaminess/consistency, did I mention
the taste? Just perfect!
I ran out of my usual Aleppo brand tahini and it wasn't available
from my usual source, and I needed some tahini right away. So, it
was off to Amazon and after much searching, I decided on this one:
a bit more expensive than Aleppo, but very definitely comparable
in overall excellence.
I am vegan, but I missed having creamy dressing for my salads ...
I used to buy felafels on MacDougal St. in the Village (NYC)
and I remembered the creamy tahini sauce they came smothered in.
So, I bought some tahini and mixed it in with extra-virgin olive
oil, some (optional) balsamic vinegar, sea salt and oregano, and
voila! a delicious vegan "creamy" salad dressing. Also great as
a bread dip. And by the spoonful, right out of the jar, of course. ;)
***** VERY HIGHLY RECOMMEND *****
This tahina is good for up to two quarts of hummus or baba ganoug, depending on your recipe and tastes. It seems to settle, so you may need to stir it before usng to get the proper consistency. You can also mix it with pekmez for a dip, or you can fake this with grape jam (which is cheaper). Baba ganoug is the same thing as hummus but using eggplant instead of garbanzos. You can also use fava beans.
Please keep in mind that this is people's food, not haute cuisine. It doesn't have to be served on a silver platter with pita bread (which is "esh baladi" or people's bread). I'm cheap. My apartment building distributes free day-old Panera bread, so I slice up baguettes and use that instead to dip into the hummus.
And the proper Arabic is "tahina", not "tahini" (at least in the Egyptian, Najd, and Hijaz dialects). If you say "tahini" in Cairo, people will stare at you strangely and tag you as a tourist. Don't get tagged as a tourist.
First I tried the Living Tree Community organic raw tahini. I absolutely loved the taste and everything about it...except the price tag.
I have been going thru a jar of tahini about every 3 weeks so it was pricey to buy that often.
So I based my purchase of Kevala on the price and reviews.
Based on the reviews, I decided to bite the bullet and order 2 jars so I didnt have to reorder so soon.
When I received them, I had to stir it for about 15 minutes to get the chunks out. And I am not a fan of the taste whatsoever. I'm sure it's because I'm used to the raw taste and this is obviously roasted. I wouldnt say I hate it, but I wont be ordering it again after these 2 jars are gone. I may have to just suck it up and pay more for one I know I love.

I agree with others. I would've given this 5 stars the first time I received it. This is some of the best tahini I've had. Read morePublished 1 month ago by GS
Great value but it separates like most natural nut butters which makes it hard to use consistently as you sometimes get thick stuff and other times get more oil than nuts. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Brian Lane
Love this Tahini. So convenient o order on Amazon and have it shipped. I live in a town of 4,000 people so you can imagine we don't have many food choices. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Francy
Used to be the best Tahini around I even went ahead and subscribe and save.
But last shipment quality dropped, it's darker and bitter, maybe overroasted .. Not sure
I've seen it used on my favorite show (Chopped) - and finally have it. LOVE it - made a Thai dish with it, and it was super.Published 3 months ago by Laura Hardman
