Thank you Joseph :)

It was very funny but also important to me to learn the anatomy of briar :)

Now I will try some methods of drying too.

Epsilon, what island do you live on? Greek food is not unlike heaven. It must be a reflection of the land and the people.

After boiling (which I didn't know -thanks for that tip), you dry them for how long? I may do the same with burls from other woods in my area.
