Cactus Leaf (Nopales)



Nopales are the pads from the popular Barbary Fig cactus. These pads are harvested young for tenderness. The pads have sharp spines across its surface that need to be handled carefully and removed before cooking and consumption. Large and mostly flat, the pads are usually only about half an inch thick and oval in shape. Nopales should be moderately bright green when fresh and fade to a muted olive green after cooking. Nopales are tender and slightly gelatinous with a tender toothsome crunch.
