1lb. Known as Ceci Neri in Italy, these rare heirloom legumes have a firm texture and an irresistible earthy, nutty flavor. Very popular in many regions in Italy, including Puglia, where they are enjoyed as zuppa di ceci neri (black chickpea soup). Black Garbanzos are much denser than classic Garbanzos, making them ideal for salads, stews, or even baked dishes. The skins are thicker but they are not chewy or tough, just a little more interesting. Total bean cook time can range from 1 to 3 hours. Salt when the beans start to soften. A pre-soak of 2 to 6 hours will lessen the cooking time.
Very unique! Nutty creamy flavor
I liked these, but they do take longer to cook than the average bean.
