Chick Peas: 5kg
DIRECTIONS FOR USE FOR FISHING:
Tip the dry chick peas into a container with a lid, cover with cold water and seal the lid. Leave over night. Now move the chick peas and water into a pan and bring to the boil. When boiling, reduce heat and simmer for about 15 minutes. If you would prefer, use a pressure cooker, this has the advantage of retaining more of the natural smells. Keep an eye on the bait, ensure it is softening but not breaking up. Ensure the chick peas are covered with water at all times. When boiled, return the chick peas and water to the bucket and leave to stand for a few hours, preferably overnight. It is now ready to use or freeze. To flavour chick peas prepare as above but in the water add flavour and colouring. Quantity of each will vary depending on the amount of bait in the container and the quantity of water added. Careful not to overdo it!
After soaking, bring to the boil and simmer for 10 -15 minutes in the same water they where soaking in.
