"I never had had these and didn't know what to do with them once I soaked them ovrnght.. so having missed olives so much since getting away from sodium, I decided to fix them the way my Mom used to fix old fashion Italian Olives in spices, oil and hot pepper seeds. Wow did they turn out great. They readily absorbed the main of what I put on them and I can't keep out of them. I put them on salads as well as eating them right out of the container. I am really glad I got these and that I made some good use of them."
"Chickpeas may be chickpeas, but it seems as of late that almost every grocery store carries stale or old ones (perhaps because most people buy the canned ones). That means much longer cooking times. These Arrowhead peas must have been very fresh because they took less than 2 hours to cook in water on the stove top."
