Re: Tinned chickpeas

To this day I have to 'skin' my broad beans to eat them, although nowadays I actually like them as opposed to being forced to eat 'what's good for me'.

The best value for money chick peas are those sold in (at least in Spain) Lidl, cheap, tasty and precooked, a jar of them goes into most of my stews and chilis.

I also always buy the kidney and pinto beans that Lidl do in a jar as the dried beans sold in Spain never lose that plastic skin quality no matter how much you cook them, it's not possible to make good refried beans with the dried item as the skins ruin it.
