I have been kind of obsessed with hummus for the last few weeks. Obsessed to the point of getting tired of going to the store every few days to buy canned chick peas (or garbanzo beans, if you will).
Then it occurred to me: I can black beans so that this doesn’t happen. Why can’t I can chick peas?
As it turns out, I can. And I did. I used the method I use for my black beans here.
Chick peas are bigger than black beans, so I cut the amount per pint jar down to 1/2 C. In retrospect that was not necessary. 2/3 C. would be fine.
One pound of chick peas yielded 7 pint jars. If you fill them with 2/3 C. of chick peas, it will be more like 4 or 5.
Now I won’t have to run to the store for at least a few weeks!
