Everybody seems to rave about how easy it is to make your own hummus ... but last time I tried, it tasted really bitter and icky. I'm guessing it was the tahini that I was using (I've never tasted tahini before, but the little taste I tried before throwing it into the blender tasted icky to me). Should I get the roasted or raw tahini? Salted or unsalted?
Also is it okay to use canned chickpeas instead of cooking dry chickpeas for hummus?
