Boil the skull and inner horn. Be careful and not boil them too long or the skull and horns will become brittle. just watch closely and when the meat seems to be pulling from the skull easily and the inner horn(core) turns white,that should be enough. Then wash and dry then reset horns.
A lot of us guys here on the forums dont advise boiling horns, just the cores/skulls. The horns can shrink, too. Check the archives on this, you'll see quite a difference in opinion on this one. You only have to see one horn warp to know why I say no boiling! Good luck whichever way you choose to proceed.
I thought you were asking if you boiled the inner horn...DO NOT boil the outer(true) horn..Just wash inside and out and let dry...Just clarifying. I mis read your question
thanks for the help
