Until about a year ago I never heard of Hummus, but my daughter Paula was with me one day at an oriental food store in Carbondale and she bought a jar that was already made. I asked what it was. When she told me, I decided it probably could be made much cheaper than she bought it for, so I went to looking and experimenting. I bought tahini to make it with and it was VERY expensive. I made it by a recipe I found on the net and when I knew what it was supposed to taste like I experimented some more till I did not have to have tahini--as it is made in this recipe. Anyway, this is the final experiment she likes best.
A friend gave me this recipe and it is a great treat for the kiddos, especially in the spring and summer! Easier to make if you have popsicle molds (available at most dollar stores and from Tupperware), but you can get away with using 3 ounce paper cups and craft sticks or plastic spoons. Plan ahead, as they need to freeze for several hours.
An old family recipe from St. John Lutheran Church member, Lillie Kauitzsch, Bartlett, Texas. A much better taste than store bought. I also remember my great-grandmother making noodles like this when I visited her in Oklahoma, many moons ago. Preparations time is an estimate.
