Description
 
LOCAL, CHEMICAL FREE, NATURALLY GLUTEN-FREE
Benne is a pre-cursor to modern sesame seeds and was an essential medicinal and kitchen garden plant during our Colonial and Antebellum Eras. It was grown in all great Carolina kitchen gardens, in particular in the forbidden subsistence gardens of African slaves who brought benne to the Carolinas. Its flavor is reminiscent of toasted peanuts, but intertwined with a wildflower tang, and a sensation of verdancy and vigor.
