Nopal Harvest and Preparation Workshop – Saturday, May 11, 10:30am

Laurie Melrood will lead a workshop about the eminently edible opuntia cactus known as ‘Indian Fig.’ Learn how to identify the ‘Ficus Indica’ cactus and techniques for harvest, preparation, preservation and food preparation from the fresh pads. Properly consumed prickly pear pads, stems and fruits have been shown to control cholesterol, heal skin and tissue, and positively influence blood sugar levels in persons with diabetes. We will prepare a tasty green salsa and enjoy homemade gluten free tostadas using the nopal pads. Take home a jar of fresh salsa and enjoy the tostadas with other foods. Fee $35. Reservations recommended, call 520-398-2252.
