Dried Pedrosillanos Chickpeas extra: what they are and characteristics
Dried pedrosillano chickpeas extra are one of the most popular legumes in Spain. It is a type of chickpea much smaller in size than the dry lechoso chickpeas, also available in Gastronomic Spain.
Our legume of the pedrosillano variety is farmed in the communities of Castilla La Mancha and Castilla y León, but the name Pedrosillano comes from the production that is historically carried out in the municipality of Pedrisillo el Ralo, in Salamanca’s province.
Among its characteristics it can be highlighted:
It has a 370 / 100 grams calibre.
The grain of the Pedrosillano chickpea is full, slightly wrinkled and almost rounded.
Its natural colour is beige, but once the chickpea is cooked, it turns yellowish orange.
It is a dry product.
It needs between 10 to 12 hours of soaking.
Cooking time depends on the type of kitchen ware, if it is a pressure cooker or a casserole.
Usually, its flavour is intense, mostly when they are cooked into stews.
In addition, they absorb too much liquid (100% in a weight and volume ratio).
Once they are cooked, the pedrosillanos chickpeas are preserved in their entirety: they do not open and do not lose the skin.
