sorry for late reply. im in school for 9 hours on thursday. Ok cool. ill have to try some methods. i put some on the dehydrator and they turned out ok. interesting but still good. I want to try and save them for stuffing and wrapping in bacon later. like giant abt's. if i freeze them and they turn mushy, that may be ok cuz im gonna wrap them in bacon and smoke. but i have never done this. haha. if i roast them and then freeze, can they be used for abt's later?
