Small Town Specialties Heirloom Black Chickpea (Garbanzo Bean) These originated in Kabul Afghanistan, but were grown here locally in Colusa County, CA. What started as an experiment with just a handful of beans, became a hobby with a flourishing crop. We are excited to introduce these Heirloom Black Chickpeas, to the local food market and throughout the US.
These Heirloom Black Chickpeas are a smaller bean, with a firm texture, and have a smoky flavor that is memorable. Non-Gmo and Gluten-free!
These beans are dried, so the shelf life is a couple of years, if kept in a cool dry environment.
These are your typical dried bean. So please sort, rinse, and soak overnight before cooking.
