Chickpeas ? 'A Warning!….

Post by Who2 »

A few days ago I made a shank stew, nothing new in that. I dug out some chickpeas, soaked them overnight and then boiled them in hungarian paprika water, nice addition to the stew. 5 stars!
Today I was making minted lamb burgers and a soup with the trimmings went back and dug out the near empty storage jar to find I had to rinse off hundreds of coffee grounds ?
Turns out all the chickpeas were riddled with thousands of these little bugs, anyhow they didn't spoil the taste of my stew the other night.

I've found them in an unopened bag of flour, rice and even minute ant looking things in a new bag of sugar. Maybe harmless but all ended up in the bin. I think that they were all some kind of mite.
