"Going to do a bit of mincing, are we?" the (gay) shopkeeper asked with a bit of a wink.
Well, yes pal, but not the mincing you're thinking about.
I've used it a few times now, but not to mince meat, yet. A friend of mine who was born in Jordan makes the most amazing hummus. Smooth and creamy, not like mine which always seems a bit dry.
When I asked about her recipe, I checked off the ingredients. Chickpeas, check. Tahini, check. Salt, lemon juice, garlic, check, check check.
The difference, though, is to process the chickpeas through a mincer. Somehow they come out smoother. Don't ask me why.
