"My mother and I would always use all of the fernbrake. If they are already dried, we would just throw them in the pot of boiling water but you can also pre-soak them as you would with dried beans over night. And back in traditional times, they would use wood ashes since this also gave a slow but steady temp to dry and preserve them. My mother and I would lay them out on newspapers in a storage room and keep the door closed w/a normal room fan turned on to dry them before storing them in big black trash bags to use when we needed. You can either leave them whole or cut them up into bite size pieces. We actually would just leave them whole. And don't crush them so that they splinter. Leave them whole. Enjoy the meal! :D"
