How to Make Dried Chickpeas in a Crock-Pot from Food.com: It was a garage sale bargain I couldn't resist. So after all these years, I am first using a crockpot--and one of the first things I made was this--and these chickpeas are outrageously good. No more canned chickpeas for me.
"Throw a pound of chickpeas in a slow cooker (no soaking required) and just like that, you can replace four cans. Not only do they taste better in the long run, they’re a heck of a lot cheaper." ~ Alton Brown
