French-fried Cactus

This is one recipe in which we don't boil the plants first, in this
one the fresh cactus are cut into french fry style strips 3/8" wide
and rolled in a batter of milk and eggs then rolled through flour,
cornmeal or a combination of both. Frying in a skillet or deep
fryer will give a deep gold/green color. They are great fresh out
of the oil.

That fried cactus was great!, October 11, 2004 - 06:20 AM
Reviewer: Fred Gomez from Oak Park, IL
WE had a bit of a time getting cactus, but eventually found some online through www.rivenrock.com . It was a lot easier to prepare than we'd imagined. When we sliced the cactus after cleaning it we tasted some raw and it was surprisingly tasty. But when we fried it the color was beautiful, and the taste was scrumptious. I'll be a regular cactus eater now.
