Use and Preservation:
Can be dried, but once rehydrated they become too leathery.
It’s better to powder them and use them as seasoning in soups or sauces.
Before freezing it’s better to steam for 10 minutes then freeze them. That way they will keep their shape and texture and won’t have that bitter taste after thawing. They can be eaten raw.

Available fresh from July through November. Also available in powder right now.
