I am planning on making a pilgrimage to Trader Joe's next week when I go home to the Bay Area for Christmas. Most of the stuff I want to bring back is frozen, except for the hummus. If I freeze it, will that change the texture?

P.S. I miss TJ's. sad.gif

Tell me about it, merigayle! I did most of my grocery shopping at TJ's and my local produce stand, and here there are neither. Nothing grows in Utah in December. sad.gif (the peaches in summer are another story though!) The more I think about it, the more I think I need to invest in a bigger cooler.

Let me know how it goes, cgerber. I wouldn't think it would change the texture too much, but wondered if anyone had more experience than I.

I suspect that it freezes well, but I find that once you have had home made, you do not want the store-bought anymore. It's better tasting an it is way cheaper to make yourself.

Yes, but I like the sundried tomato basil kind. And I don't have a food processor. Not loving the regular hummus I got at Whole Foods this week, too much lemon.

A handheld blender is all you need. You can get one for $20!

my homemade hummus never has the right texture, i love the texture of store bought hummus, especially Sabra. I have tried the blender, bullet, hand mixer, and food processor. oh well.

We've frozen it before, and it's fine when thawed.
