British Chickpeas

Hodmedod's British Pulses & Grains

Sorry, we've sold out of our 2019 crop of British-grown chickpeas and are busy getting the new 2020 harvest cleaned and ready for sale.

In the meantime try our Carlin Peas, Britain's traditional alternative to chickpeas? With a superb nutty flavour and texture they're an excellent substitute for chickpeas.

Sign up to our monthly newsletter for regular news, recipes and offers on our British-grown pulses, grains, seeds and more.

Norfolk farmer Henry Raker harvested the first ever field-scale crop of British chickpeas in 2019. This year's crop was harvested in September and will be available soo.

Recipes for Chickpeas

Previously we've recommended substituting British-grown carlin peas for chickpeas in any recipe. We don't have any recipes specifically calling for chickpeas yet, but now why not use our chickpeas as an alternative in our carlin peas recipes?

    • Cooking instructions

      Soak the chickpeas for 6 hours. This first UK-grown trial crop of chickpeas may contain occasional discoloured chickpeas – we recommend picking these out between soaking and cooking.

      Cover with water or stock, bring to the boil and simmer for 30 to 50 minutes until the chickpeas are soft. Add more water if needed.
