  1. Ann says:

    Do you use canned or fresh?

  2. Hi, we use died one. It becomes hard but can be crushed by mixer. I’ve never tried fresh or boiled one. Fresh one must work, but boiled one can be a little bit different especially in nutrition.

  3. Or you can make this recipe with roasting them a little bit longer till get good brownish color, and crush them. They are softer and easier to make powder.
