    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.

      This was my first experience with making hummus. I could not find tahini in the grocery store so used the toasted sesame seeds as this recipe calls for. I used fresh garlic and crushed red pepper flakes in place of hot sauce. Its extremely tasty, and a recipe I'll share with others!

      I thought the hummus had too much lemon. The toasted sesame seeds were a nice touch, but I ended up adding more garbanzos to make up for the lemon.

      I love the toasted sesame seed flavor. I also like the fresh lemon taste. I just got done making it when I had to take my daughter to tennis. I left the whole thing in the kitchen and ran out. I came back 10 minutes later and my husband and 4 year old son were eating it. They loved it! I told them it's not done until it's had a chance to stand and allow the flavors to blend in. But they boys did not care, they thought it was delicious. I substituted one clove of fresh garlic for the garlic powder and I used 1 teaspoon of chili powder, 1/4 teaspoon of cumin, 1/4 teaspoon of paparika and a dash of cayenne pepper powder instead of the hot sauce. I would definitely make this again. Thank you Darlene.
