For a creamier hummus, slip the skins off of the canned chick peas by squeezing them between your fingers. The pickle juice adds a great flavor to the hummus. Please try it!

Taking the skins off the chick peas is time-consuming, but once I tasted the difference in the hummus, I was convinced that my labor was not in vain. Interesting use of pickle juice--but worked well. The only thing that I would change is to add 1/2 cup either chick pea liquid or water to the recipe for an even creamier texture. Or clarify the recipe to include more liquid. Otherwise, great tip and great hummus!
