Soaking chickpeas? Something went wrong...

korrie Apr 27, 2013 11:32 AM

I just soaked chickpeas overnight, for about 14 hours. They are still hard and expanded minimally.

Is this normal? Do they stay hard until I cook them? This is my first dried chickpeas experience, but I've soaked many types of beans before, so I'm confused.

Thanks for any help!

    They will not soften until you cook them.
