DRIED COD FISH WITH CHICKPEAS-traditional meal for Christmas eve

At the urging of my dad I decided to add this recipe on my site.
Soak the chickpeas at least two days earlier!
Dried cod fish is mandatory food on the table of our family on Christmas Eve.

On the day before Christmas the whole city smells unique for me divine, the smell of cooked dried codfish.
I like to buy Norwegian dried cod fish because it is delicious.
Already in November, go into a delicatessen and pick a nice cod of about 1000grama to 1300 grams.
Since it is very dry it should be put in the melt water 3 days before cooking.
Change the water every day.
On Christmas Eve, early in the morning put to cook cod in cold water.
When boils add some salt and just a spoon of olive oil.
Chickpeas melt one day and cook it in salted water.
So I look forward to Christmas Eve, already i can feel that wonderful perfume of dried cod fish

It is necessary to / for 6-8 people /

1200 grams of cod
500 grams chickpea
bunch parsley
2-3 heads of garlic
a little white pepper in grain
