Rancho Gordo has been pursuing Black Chickpeas for years, chasing a memory from an incredible meal in Italy.  They were lucky enough to locate Italian-production Ceci Neri and are happy to offer them to you. They are much denser than classic Garbanzos, making them ideal for salads, stews, or even baked dishes.  The skins are thicker but they are not chewy or tough, just a little more interesting.
