Seed ready for cold yet?

I found a lone herbaceous Peony seed when I was doing some clean up late last year, I put it in an envelope to wintersow later. Then I read up on Peonies from seed and realized it needed a warm period before it got stratified. So I've had this in a dresser drawer since December 5, it hasn't done much lately. Is it ready for cold yet?

tree peony seeds send out a root during warm stratification in Nov-Dec; don't know if herbaceous peonies behave same way.
Pot it and put it in frig.

Thanks, Dave, I'll give it a try.
