Sesame Plant

Have you seen a sesame plant before? It was my first time to see a sesame plant in my whole life at my mother-in-law's farm and all the neighborhoods. Only here in Korea where sesame plants can be seen everywhere. I saw lots of it at Namhae when I went there for vacation. By that time, they were harvesting it and dried them up under the sun. Sesame seeds are very well-known not just in Korea but internationally as the best Asian cooking ingredient. Koreans often called it "key sogom". They mainly used it for cooking almost every dishes to add 'taste'. Sesame seeds are also good for bread toppings. Here's some pictures of sesame plant.
