The fritillary processing procedure is divided into the following steps:
When the leaves of Fritillaria begin to turn yellow and wither, the root bulbs can be harvested at this time. The excavation time is preferably 10 days after the beginning of summer, because the medicinal effect of Fritillaria are better at this time. The excavated fritillary should not be held in the hand for a long time, otherwise it would become “oily” after processing. At the same time, when transporting the fritillary, handle it lightly to avoid damage to the bulb.
The freshly excavated Fritillaria is similar to lily. It needs to be poured into the washing machine to clean up the soil on the bulb in time and should be rinsed repeatedly.
The washed Fritillaria is graded into the frame basket to the size, and then spread out. After draining the water, it should be sliced.
Pay attention to the thickness when you slice the fritillaria. Small fritillary with a diameter of less than 2 cm should be sliced with a slicer or directly dried. Larger fritillary with a diameter of more than 2 cm should be sliced manually, and the thickness should be 4-6 mm .
