Bon Appétit (November 2013)
Let's get a few things out of the way right up front:
1. Benne is basically just another word for sesame seeds, a term used today almost exclusively in Charleston, S.C. (In a funny post on the Cupcake Project blog, the writer wonders if the whole thing isn't just a tourism-marketing conspiracy.)
2. If sorghum isn't a pantry staple in your house, it ought to be.
3. You should really make these beans for Thanksgiving.
