“Sweet and spicy and crunchy and delicious. Great to have in your desk drawer for snacking when you "forget" to eat lunch. With vegan, vegetarian and omniverous friends, it served as a perfect hoiday gift. I must have made 3 quarts of it to give away...and that doesn't count the considerable amount I have consumed myself. May use one pre-made Roasted Ceci in place of the preparing the garbanzo beans as indicated below.”
