Sesame seeds are one of the oldest condiments known to man- they were first recorded as a crop in Babylon over 4,000 years ago. It has remained a popular spice in the Middle and Near East. Its use in cooking spread through Africa and Asia and finally to other parts of the world.
Sesame oil is resistant to rancidity, so it had particular value in ancient times.
