All You Need To Know About Cooking With Cactus
Choosing The Best Cactus
The smaller the leaf of the cactus, the smoother the pulp and the shorter the cooking time. If you're using cacti to roast or for a stew, the size of the leaf is not very important. Just make sure they're fresh, the skin is smooth, and they have a nice bright green color (not gray or dull). However, if you want to stuff them or blend them in a smoothie, it is better to choose the smaller, thinner ones as they are much softer and have no annoying fibers.
