I always use fresh so, Im not sure of how the frozen ones would work??? I think they would be fine but, you might wanna give it a rest run first! I do this most of the time on my family ... There my gineau pigs! lol! Out of season I usually buy what our grocery has in the produce isle... Fresh Cost more than frozen but, I beleive it would be worth it in the end... It taste So, GOOD... Hope you like as much as I and my customers do!
