Sesame paste
That's the kind of bold flavor they enjoy in Albuquerque!

Sesame paste (tahini) has got to be up there, but I think it's that whale fat stuff inuits like. Mukluk? Muktuk?

That's true. Thanks guys.

Never thought I'd actually want to get calories into my system. It's always been just the opposite.
