Garden Fresh Dried Chick Peas
The chickpea is one of the earliest cultivated legumes: 7,500-year-old remains have been found in the Middle East.
Chickpeas are a small legume popular in Mediterranean, Middle Eastern and Indian cookery.
They are usually sold pre-cooked in cans, or dried; the latter must be soaked before cooking.
Chickpea, besan or ‘gram’ flour, made from dried ground chickpeas, is widely used in Indian and Bangladeshi cuisine.
