What can you do with spruce buds?

For the last week the spruce leaf tips have started emerging. I've been reading about them for the last several months (http://www.articlesbase.com/nutrition-articles/eating-wild-spruce-bud-tips-2147712.html) and have been picking them like berries. They make a slightly bitter citrusy tea, which tastes good hot or cold. They garnish salads and meats like rosemary. They taste pretty good as a snack straight off the tree too.

Anything else you can do with them? Can they be dried or frozen for storage? Do they have any nutritional value other than the vitamin c?

I know in some cultures they consume them raw. I also know that some doctor used them to treat people like medicine about 100 years ago. I don't really know much about their nutritional value, but if you can eat them - go ahead, they have medicinal value.
