I let them soak in salt water for awhile to let the buggs crawl out. Then slice in half. Salt, pepper and flour and fry in greese. I never find enough to eat any other way. On good years I have tried freezing some on a cookie sheet but now just try to eat them fresh even if there are a lot of them. They are not as good later if you ask me. If we really find a lot, just invite friends cause fresh is better in my view and the friends don't seem to mind at all.
