Darlene Summers's Note:
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.
