“ Brand: Chtoura Garden / Type: Dip „
Chtoura Garden's most reknowned product is probably it's hommos and tahina, the chick pea and sesame concoction concoction keeps for a reasonably long time and is well stored in a slender can with a ring pull. Tahina (also sometimes written as tahini) is basically made from sesame seeds and is the base of many a hommos including this Lebanese product from Chtoura Garden. Hommos varies so much, I would describe this particular one as being a particularly filling type without an extraordinarily strong taste, I recommend giving it a little stir before each time you use it, otherwise the tahina has a tendency to run into a particular area and this can alter the flavour. There's a lot of competition when it comes to hommos and I wouldn't say this was the best one nor as good as many other Chtoura Garden products but it is very good pricewise and it does seem you get your value for money because due to it's filling and heavy nature, you won't need as much as you would of some of it's lighterweight competitors. You can always liven it up a little yourself with a hint of lemon juice, I find that this makes a perfect sandwich spread and like to put it with a lettuce ladened feta salad.
