Nopales at the Santa Rosa Farmers Market

Hector of Hector's Honey
had fresh nopales and he and Jill of Crescent Moon farms were quick to offer cooking tips. They look very intimating but it turns out if you think of them like an armed zucchini they are easy to use. Raw they taste tart a bit citrusy and cooked the flavor is mellower. Either way quite good. Epicurious has some interesting recipes
