Sesame and Peanut Paste, Stone Ground
On sale: jars best before early Oct.
Very Taiwan, this is a sesame paste that’s actually half sesame paste and half peanut butter. Use it anywhere that calls for sesame paste, but especially for Taiwanese Peanut Noodles, a cold noodle dish enjoyed in the early mornings after a long night of KTV.
Our sesame pastes are slowly stone ground between two smooth circular stones. This process generates very little heat, so the end product is pure in flavor, nutrients, and texture. Many nut butters and pastes are blade ground (even making peanuts in your food processor) which raise temperatures and can change the taste and texture.

rich and heady with bitter sesame and creamy peanut
Use for recipes calling for chinese sesame paste. Mix in salad dressings or sauces or simply enjoy on toast with a bit of salt and honey! Dishes: cold sesame noodles, pork wontons with sesame sauce
Separation is natural! Stir well before use.

About DongHe Oil
Dong He Oil is a traditional producer of cold-pressed oils and stone-ground sesame pastes located in Chiayi, Taiwan. The oil mill was founded 100 years ago in 1921, as the original producer of cooking oil for the Dongshi township in Chiayi county. Operating in the original wood-beamed, brick building with much of the original machinery, Dong He upholds the same traditional craft principles that distinguishes their products from competitors. They continue to produce cold-pressed sesame, peanut and camellia seed oils today, and have added stone-ground sesame pastes, peanut butters, and a line of specialty sauces featuring house ingredients and family recipes.
