Did you know?

Dried chickpeas can be cooked in a slow cooker? aka a crockpot?

Well, I didn't but SmittenKitchen says she does it and I certainly trust her recipes. She says...

"* I make all of my dried beans in the slow-cooker these days. They are perfect every time, and the flavor of fresh beans — even the sad-looking ones from grocery store bins I used — is incomparable. No presoaking, just cover them 2 to 3 inches of water and cook them 3 hours on high. (I have learned that cooking time can vary widely in slow-cookers so allot more time than you might need. I often make mine in the day or days before and let them cool in their cooking water, which is then by then very flavorful.)"

I am going to try this as soon as I get home, in the delicious recipe she has on her blog. It's right up there at that link...Spinach and Chickpeas. I think that will balance out the Maltese Easter egg I ate, won't it???
