- 400 g. sesame
- I put the sesame seeds in a colander and wash 2-3 times with plenty of water. The wring well, spread on a kitchen towel (old why lubricated) and cover with it.
- I make alisiva by putting a pan double the amount of water and dissolving means 1 tablespoon clean ashes (originating from wood without chemical). Just boil the mixture for 1 minute, remove from heat and having leave 10-15 minutes ‘sit’ ashes at the bottom, slowly get the top of the liquid into another bowl, leaving the pot ash and a portion of the liquid. I leave it to cool completely and then with a strainer that means I put cotton strain again the liquid into another container and have ready the alisiva.
