    Well not too much with just 10. Down here these things are everywhere. Some people even eat the pads (Nopalitos). They are good and taste like green beans to me. So, once the flower blooms, it will close up and turn green. It looks like a bulb on top of the cactus. When it turns red at the middle and bottom, that's the time to pick them. Wear gloves! It usually takes about 10 to make a pint of jelly! We make it by the quarts!

    Probably about 30 years ago the company's produce warehouse sent out a 10# box of Nopalitos (cactus leaves) complete with the needles/spines/owie causers.

    No one in the produce department knew what they were or how they were used so I asked a friend and fellow employee who was Hispanic what they were and how to fix them.

    My store manager came by, saw the nopalitos and said "Roy, what the hell are these"? Before I could tell him he reached in and grabbed a handful-----------Name:  no see smily.gif

    As he was slowly pulling his hand out of the box I said "Those are cactus leaves Jim" and he said---"Yea, I kind of figured that out already"---and slowly walked away checking out his hand
