Not sure if you were asking a question or not... if you were then... they are traditionally made into Almibar (Thick Syrups), Candy Rolls, Preserved in Sugar, As fillign in sweet tamales, Atoles etc., In Santiago Tianguistenco (Mexico State)... I had them as the star item in a Mole Rojo... in other words it was just a regular, but slightly sweeter version of Mole Rojo... instead of Poultry... the Tejocotes (& other fruits) were poached & served with the mole & some white tamales (no filling).
