What if I can't tell whether they are RAW or DRIED?
These are the big ones and they were neither "green" looking nor very soft. I know they are raw, but I'm only cooking 2 lb for myself, so how long do I boil the suckers? Also, I only had 1/2 cup of salt that I put in at the beginning of boiling. I've had to add water since, so will that reduce the salty taste? HELP!!
