You should post a recipe or two when you're preparing it! 🌵 I have never had cactus before!

@KariSamuel most people haven’t! Or don’t know it’s edible. I’ll post up a few recipes this weekend if I get a chance 🤙🏽 I’ll make sure to tag you too

@kylers 🤣 ofcourse! You know what I’m going to maybe make a YouTube video of me cutting, destining, peeling and cooking a few of the species; will post photos here but YouTube will show it off visually 👍
