Default Dehydrating chick peas/garbanzo beans



Advertise Here

First time at chick peas. Never really heard of anyone else doing them but my kids love them so I got to try.

I don't know if they need citric acid or not. I have boiled them very lightly until they are perfectly soft. My sense is that I can put them directly into the excalibur but I have no idea for how long, what temp, what prep, or it I can cover them with something that might give them a little flavor.

Could I cover them with a light coat of lemon pepper? Or should I leave them alone? Or would you recommend something different?

Looking for any insight.

Thanks,
Cool Hand

No takers eh? Well, they came out fantastic and look like they would travel well. Added lemon pepper and man they were good.

115-120 for 6 hours they should end up extremely dry and they will split. Anything you coat them with will intensify greatly after drying so it's best to leave them be.

120 for 18 hours and they still weren't totally dry. I wonder if I should cook them before hand as much so they don't take on as much moisture? Looking to make them edible with a minimal amount of effort.

Thanks PK.

Cook them, rinse and pat as dry as possible with a towel. Set up in the dehydrator one layer thick on the plates with space between each bean.

I dry them from the garden and all we do is put them on the stainless steel drying racks for 2 weeks and they are fine. Then replant the next year.
