The color of this pumpkin may be a bit grayish, but the inside is definitely not! The bright orange flesh has a delicious sweet taste and a long shelf life. Roasting the pumpkin in the oven will make it extra sweet! Crown Prince pumpkins owe their royal name to the round crown on the underside.
Cactus leaves are also called nopal or nopales. Cactus leaf is widely used in Mexican cuisine. Here they use cactus leaves in salads, tacos, minced meat or with eggs and many believe in the healing power of cactus leaf. But feel free to use cactus leaf in a blender, together with orange juice; a delicious and healthy juice! Don't forget to remove the needles :-)
