Basic cooking in my school was horrendously basic and rather boring. "Design a sandwich", "design a soup for an athlete and then do pages of write-up and graphs to discuss its crunchiness, sweetness etc."

Yea I didn't get on with that.

Most books and recipes recommend that you boil fast for the first 10 minutes of cooking to remove the toxins then simmer until cooked. When they are cooked chuck out the cooking liquid and use the beans for whatever you are planning.

It refers to members of the Kidney bean family but not to chick peas (aka garbanzos)

Having said that I always throw away the liquid from canned chickpeas. No reason really - it's just gloopy and horrid looking.

Dont look for the light at the end of the tunnel. Stomp along and switch the bl**dy thing on yourself.
