We’ve been pursuing¬†Black Chickpeas for years, chasing a memory from an incredible meal in Italy.¬† We were lucky enough to locate Italian-production Ceci Neri and we’re happy to offer them to you. They 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.
