The Cicerchia is a legume has only recently been rediscovered in its original version, which had been clouded in recent years by a greater and tasteless variety produced by multinationals. The real Cicerchia comes with a little and angular shape, with colours ranging from gray to light brown, has a thin and a little leathery skin.  In the past, it sowed between maize together with beans and chickpeas, once harvested the plants, they were united in small bundles and hung in the sun and then beaten. A good supply of Cicerchia was a guarantee for the cold winter.
