Would you be able to freeze them?

Hi Guiding Cauldron..try stringing them with fishing line with a short needle and letting them dry up high. Good and dry because then you want to crush them and put them into probably a #5 capsule. that equals about a .05 of vitamin C. otherwise it's too hard to digest. There's prickly little hairs on them. Ask at the health food store where you buy your capsules what size are the doses. I do this with manzanita berries for headaches. I've also done this with fresh elderberries.
Good Health :) Hh
