British Chickpeas

Hodmedod's British Pulses & Grains

British chickpeas are back!

These delicious and tender chickpeas are the harvest of the third year of British production. In the face of challenging summer weather, Henry Raker managed to harvest a crop on the light Breckland soils of Norfolk. Enjoy them!

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 has now been cleaned and packed. After a tricky summer in the field it'd be fair to say that the 2021 harvest chickpeas don't look as perfect as their imported cousins, but they taste fantastic. The third image shows the cooked chickpeas, as you can see there's some discolouration.

    • Cooking instructions

      Soak the chickpeas for 6 hours. These UK-grown chickpeas contain some discoloured darker chickpeas. Though the discolouration is cosmetic, if you prefer you can pick these out between soaking and cooking. (That said, if you're making humous or similar there's really no need to do this.)

      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.
