Cactus Salsa Recipe

  John's Cactus Salsa Recipe
 
All of the ingredients can be adjusted for taste.
 
Ingredients:
two pounds of cactus prepared and diced
a lot of diced tomatoes, or a couple cans of diced tomatoes
three or four pickled jalapeno peppers (or to taste)
three cloves or more (to taste) of garlic
an onion or two, diced
a can each of red kidney, black bean, and pinto beans
a can of sweet corn
pinch of basil
a bunch of chopped cilantro
quarter cup of olive oil
couple dashes of salt and some ground black pepper will add flavor
a handful of shelled sunflower seeds, shelled and crushed pumpkin seeds, or crushed pine nuts, or any mix of them
 
For a real crowd pleaser at a picnic or party make this cactus salsa ahead of time and allow it to blend its flavors in the refrigerator for a few hours or more.
Just mix all the ingredients above that you can obtain.
Some hot peppers are always in favor here in the Southwest,
but other folks may need it tamed down on the hot peppers some.
One can use this as a dip for tortilla chips, or a relish and garnish on burritos, meat dishes or a general spicy condiment over eggs or other foods.

Cactus health benefits, fights diabetes January 18 2016, 0 Comments

Many of our customers say they take cactus as a medicine. 
It does not take much to regulate blood sugar. It is said to slow the absorption of sugar into the body and reduces the spikes in sugar levels.
This is an endorsement of a prepared cactus juice that is marketed nationally.

People can buy our fresh organic edible cactus and see if they get the same benefits.


Dr Oz discusses how the Nopal cactus (Prickly Pear Cactus) helps treat diabetes January 17 2016, 0 Comments

Dr. Oz uses some funnels and such to illustrate how it is thought eating cactus helps control the flow of sugar into the body, and thereby help relieve some of the symptoms of Type II diabetes for some people.

Many of our customers say that eating just a little of the cactus every day or two helps maintain their proper blood-sugar levels. I'm not a doctor, so I have to rely on the doctors (and customers) to know these things.
