That's my way. I only want the better riper ones.
As far as tincture, I have poisoned the multitude!
But since seeds don't make it in and its not an "aged" tincture, I agree the risks are negligible....seems like in 50 years anyway?
This year I am using pre-processed and if it is steam processed, I wonder more about the weakening of it than the toxins getting through.
