In times of quarantine, many of us give up wanting to freeze absolutely everything, because we don’t know how long we need to keep the food we already have.
Freeze cooked nopales It is a good idea when you bought enough and you will not eat them in one day, so keeping them in good condition is necessary. Some people prefer not to, but for those who want to take the risk, freezing cooked cactus plants is possible, and right now I’ll explain how to do it the right way.
The first thing you should do is remove the thorns, wash them and cut them into strips, squares or whatever you like. Get a bag or a container, both must be freezer safe (there are some specially made for the cause).
Boil one liter of water for every 450 grams of nopales. While the water begins to boil, put ice water in a glass container, you will use it later.
When the water is boiling, place the nopales in there for a minute, then remove and soak them in the ice water for another minute.
This process is to cut the cooking of the nopales.
Drain the cactus plants VERY well, they should practically be dry. Then place them inside the container or bag and close very well, remove all the air that is inside.
Now yeah freeze cooked cactus plants!
