Sesame seeds have a long and established history; they were once highly valued for their oil in ancient times. The famous phrase "open sesame" from The Arabian Nights refers to the unique feature of the sesame seed pod, which bursts open when it reaches maturity. Serve these crackers with hummus, peanut butter, or slices of cheese.
