CECI NERI – BLACK CHICKPEAS

The ancient Romans also used them often, mostly after fried them.
Their harvest takes place mainly in the months of August and September.

Once collected, they are dried to allow a longer shelf life and to be able to eat them even in winter.
They can be cooked in many ways: as a first course in pasta and chickpeas, but also as a dessert, candied with sugar.
The black chickpea has very small dimensions and an often irregular shape.

Compared to the classic white or red chickpea that we all know, it differs in color and in the particular shape of the skin, which is not smooth but wrinkled.
From a nutritional point of view it is rich in fiber, which is why it is considered a particularly satiating legume.
The flavor and nutritional characteristics are however similar to those of common chickpeas, even if the black chickpea is richer in iron, more flavorful and aromatic.
