A Quick Humus

As part of the Falafel recipe already listed, I never listed a Humus recipe, or more like how to make it.
Ingredients Please note that my kids are very salt and pepper sensitive so adjust to taste.
A tin of chickpeas, NOT drained4 tablespoons of tahina (sesame paste)2 cloves garlic, bottom cut off and pealedteaspoon of powdered cumin3 or 4 tablespoons of lemon juice2 or 3 tablespoons of olive oilsalt and pepper to taste Method The one thing about Humus is it must be smooth. SO use a strong blender.

Empty tin into the blender then add garlic, tahina, the garlic cloves and cumin. add the 3 tablespoons of lemon juice and 2 tablespoons. And blend. Not that I have kept on standby the lemon juice and Olive oil. This is because you may need to add it later when the blender is struggling.

Blend or pulse until mixed, then taste, add lemon juice, salt and pepper to taste.

Then blend again.

If it is too thick add the extra olive oil

You can also add powdered coriander or paprika for taste,

RPC over HTTPS does not work anymore- FIXED!

Recently I have had a problem with RPC over HTTPS. It has worked for years, but suddenly users told me it was not working. If they had told me when I would perhaps have found it quicker but instead, I had to wade through all the documentation and goodies.

For I tried to re set it up, that did not work. I tried reinstalling and that did not work.

Eventually I founds this cool tool online Test Exchange Connectivity and when I ran this test, and expanded the errors I was finally pointed in the correct direction.

In the IIS config of RPC. I click properties, and I saw that "Accept client certificates" was ticked. I unticked it and just like that it worked.

By the was cool trick I learnt to check the connectivity was to Ctrl+right click on the Outlook Icon in the right of the tool bar and the select Connection Status...

It then tells you TCP/IP or RPC.
