I'm trying to cook chickpeas from scratch for the first time.
Curious how it will turn out.
Canned chickpeas are just outrageously expensive at our village store. Hauling them from the city where they are half the price is a giant schlepfest.
Chickpea cooking success!
This will require more planning, but I'm willing to go that extra half mile.
Supposedly, cooking beans from scratch also has a smaller ecological footprint. I don't remember where I heard this, though.
I won't always have the spoons for it, so canned stuff still has its place in my pantry.
I'll make some hummus from this batch; let's see how the taste differs from canned chickpeas!
