There is a huge old cactus in the vegetable garden, which offers beautiful flowers every so often. Its flat paddles are edible as they are juicy and tender in the centre. We made a nopales salsa which had a freshness like cucumbers but with a stronger flavour. The slimy juices given off in the cooking process are kind of unusual but can be reduced by rinsing the nopales a few times.
