It occurred to me very late into my last chickpea-flour-making experience that I could probably buy dried chickpeas. I've only ever bought them in cans, so I hold that up as my flimsy defense for not realizing this little fact sooner.
This week I bought a bag of dried chickpeas - they cost me $1.32 for a pound - and ground them up in my blender. This way is so much easier since I don't have to fiddle with drying them. And, they ground up much nicer too. The flour is really fine and I'm thrilled with the end result. I'll definitely be making more chickpea flour this way!
