Cactus Jerky and Cactus Green Smoothie

Contributed by our good friend Ed.

This summer I have been making cactus jerky. Just cut the big paddles off, de-thorn them and slice them into strips.

Marinate them in your favorite marinade. Today I made my 3rd batch, my friends kept coming back for 2nds, and 3rds.

For my marinade I have used the Bragg's Liquid Aminos from Whole Foods. You may also use some Celtic sea salt, with a hot Chile pepper and smoke flavor. I marinate it for 4 to 5 hours and then put the cactus jerky in my dryer. It Comes out tasting close to beef jerky.

Cactus Green Smoothies

Also I enjoy cactus green smoothie. For that I blend 2 large cactus paddles with thorns in my Vita-mix with a cup of green grapes. I drink these green smoothies daily to help detoxify my body.
