Preparation and Use
Cleaning: I discovered that is you let them dry for at least 24 hours..some of the blossom ends fall off...then I gently rolled them with my hand inside a small cardboard box and the rest came off easily...don't wash them first..that doesn't work...wash aflter and they stay unbroken...believe me it works !
