80z sesame seeds
40z currants or raisins
1 tsp vanilla extract

Grind sesame seeds in a grinder or use ready made tahini from a jar. Break down the dried fruit in the food processor until it forms one homogenous mass. By hand, break the mass into smaller pieces, and then add the seeds or tahini and vanilla. Turn the food processor on again, and keep it turning until it forms a mass again; this will take a few minutes. You mad need to add a few drops of water to get it to hold together, but be careful, any more than a few drops and it will become too sticky. When it become a single solid mass, take walnut-sized balls of the mixture and roll between the palms of your hands to form balls or press flat into a tray. Store in the fridge.
