Method for traditional Spanish Escudella

Leave the chickpeas to soak for 24 h.
In a large pot heat the chickpeas together with the bones, pig ear, bacon, unpealed garlics, carrots,  turnip, celery, onion and beaf meat.
Carefully add salt taking into account that some of the ingredients like bacon are salty.
Cover the pot and bring to a boil. Lower heat and allow to slowly cook for 2 hours.
Cook the black sausage on a separate pot for approximately 15 minutes. Once cooked add the cabbage and heat for 10 minutes.
Once the vegetables and meat are cooked, place in a container. Bring the soup to boil and add the rice. Cook for 10 minutes.
