We buy these almost explicitly for one thing: hummus. Ever since we started prepping our beans in a pressure cooker for hummus, we have been crazy about how fast and creamy we've been able to get this delicious food to be. And now it only makes sense to buy the beans in bulk!That being said, the real prize here is that reusable jute sack, which you will notice the seller has cleverly advertised as such. The options for how you're going to reuse this bad boy are endless:* Snack bag for your home made granola* Travel case for your 100% all natural locally sourced merkin* Swim cap* Nut milk bag* Ice crushing bag for making Moscow Mules* Feed bag for your free range BLW toddlerI personally chose to make a clothespin bag for when I'm drying my cloth diapers. The possibilities are ENDLESS.
Absolutely the best tasting garbanzo beans I was ever been able to buy in US. I prepare them differently than what they recommend using a pressure cooker:1. Wash 1 Cup beans in cold water. Discard "floaters"2. Soak the beans overnight in 3 cups of water with one teaspoon of salt.3. Strain, put in a pressure cooker (I use a Kuhn Rikon Stainless-Steel Pressure Cooker, 5 qt). Add a fresh 3 cups of water with one teaspoon of salt. Bring pressure to first ring. Cook for 8 minutes (9 minutes for older beans). Use natural release (=take off heat & let the pressure drop slowly until it can be opened). If you feel the beans are too hard just let them stay in the hot water longer, and they are too soft cook them less next time.
I cooked these in my Instant Pot and made hummus with them the first time out. The best hummus I have ever made. I saved the cooking liquid and reduced it to get aquafaba, and then made a vegan chocolate mousse with it. These beans are fresh, right out of the bag I could smell the freshness. They cook up plump and beautiful. My only negative about Palouse is that they don't have every kind of bean I love to eat because I'd buy them all. Dried beans can be a crapshoot to get good ones that aren't sandy, dirty, have lots of pebbles in them when you wash and sort, or deadheads that don't cook, but stay hard. I had none of these problems. I highly recommend these.
1st, these are great quality:Grown in the USANon-Irradited (this helps with being able to sprout)Field TraceableNon-GMOAND...so easy to Sprout. I wanted to get beans that I could start sprouting and after much research, Palouse Farms presented a easy source and at a great price, too! I had almost 100% sprouting in the beans.To sprout, just soak overnight, drain and then I leave them in a colander. I use a ceramic one, standard size.Then set it on a plate to catch any drips, cover with a cloth, and I set it into a pantry/closet where it's dark and a stable temperature. From what I have read, the cooler it is, the longer the sprouting process takes. For me, in 24 hours, I had decent sprouting already. I gave it one more day to let them grow a little more.Rinse and drain a couple times a day while sprouting (although I forgot to do this and they still sprouted for me with this short sprouting time)Once sprouted, cook as normal to the consistency you want. I make a large batch, then cook and freeze some to have them handy later as we use a lot of beans weekly.I'll try out the lentils from Palouse next, from other reviews, looks like they also are good for sprouting.
Best I've tried so far. These Garbanzo beans are a step above the other brands that I have tried in the past and way better than canned.I make Hummus all the time. I prefer to use dried or fresh Garbanzo beans/Chic Peas whenever possible as opposed to canned. I've tried a few different brands and lately I have focused on buying as many Non-GMO'd products as I can.As soon as I opened the bag I noticed a difference in the size and shape of the bean compared to other brands (see picture). When I soaked them overnight they grew larger in size than the other brands as well. I then pressure cooked them exactly the same way I do all the time and was very pleased with them when cooked. Very consistent cooking and they looked great.I shuck them before I make my hummus and this can be a real pain at times because of inconsistent cooking. These however came out very consistent and the shucking was much easier. Sometimes with inconsistent cooking you will get some that are very firm and others that are mushy. These have good consistency and only a very small portion of them were soft and non were mushy.The flavor is excellent also. After two batches I'm very pleased with this product. I'll certainly buy again and again.
