    Hi there,
    I made a batch of homous at home on Saturday (chickpeas, garlic, chilli, lemon juice and a little bit of tahini)

    I put it in an airtight tub, and its been in the fridge since.

    How long would you say I've got til I need to bin it?

    Thanks

    I always go by smell and taste hun. If it tastes yukky then bin it!
    I love home made hummus and it all gets eaten with a day or two so it never goes off!
    I never use tahini though, how many syns is it and does it make a big difference to the taste?

    I think it's 4.5 syns per level tbsp (but I will double check that later and come back to you!)

    It does make a diff if you put enough in, but I only put 1/2 tbsp in this time, as wanted to use about 2 syns and it hasnt seemed to make much of a difference..... lol Serve me right for being tight with my syns!

    Thanks for the advice - its not going green yet, and still tastes ok, so I'll give it a whirl....

    Tahini is 4.5 syns for a level tablespoon, 8.5 syns for 28g. The taste is quite distinctive and I find hummus very disappointing without it, so I would use it and syn it and enjoy it!

    Also, you can make a very nice spread with tahini and soy sauce - in proportions of about 4 to 1. The soy sauce makes the tahini thicker, rather than thinner, for some reason I don't quite understand, and it is lovely as a spread in salad sandwiches.
