So I've had to buy new pack and looked at packaging. Natco Green Lentils.
Instructions: Soak for 12 hrs or overnight.
Caution. Do not eat raw or YOU WILL DIE!
Do they lie?
Are those French ones you like puy lentils? (duh). I think they're the best but far too good to waste in soup.
A farming friend once made me a divine broad bean soup that used their big furry pods.
