what you need:
It’s easy to peel a fresh avocado seed, use a sharp knife to open the skin a little bit and see how easy it comes off. Grate the seed and let it dry out completely, depending on the outside temperature and humidity that might take a few days or use a dehydrator. Once the seed flakes are completely dry you can start to prepare your Gomasio, the idea of this seasoning is to use less salt plus to add extra nutrients to your meals. If you want your Gomasio in raw food quality work with small amounts, since you have to open the sesame seeds to get all their benefits they will rot if you don t use them within a few days. So either you mix the raw seeds with the rest oft he ingredients or you toast the sesame seeds without oil in a hot pan until the first seeds start to pop open. Once they start to jump remove them from the pan immediately otherwise these tiny powerhouses will burn, let them cool down and use a hand mixer to crush.
