|My handy-dandy, portable|
I found it at Goodwill, and it's almost worth every penny I paid for it. And, with a little coaxing, it does the job. Still, I am happy I bought it; I've been doing a lot with it. I've made hummus! and baby food!
The hummus was a bit of a project. I ended up boiling my chick peas for three days, and then I had to add much water and oil during the blending process. I didn't have any tahini, so I used peanut butter; and much garlic powder, some paprika and salt. The peanut butter didn't affect it in any way except to add a small peanut taste--which I assume the tahini does anyway. I pureed it in two batches and then blended them together so there was a consistant taste. It turned out really well! I froze half of the batch until I needed it. I loved to eat it with a little mustard on a tortilla--that was a great snack! I should buy more chick peas. . . .
