I have a classic olla that I use for cooking my beans.  My
mother-in-law told me to boil water with salt in it until almost gone for
several times before using.  I don't know if my pot has lead in it or not,
but I purchased it in Michoacan, in a village where they are famous for
them.  My mother-in-law and her relatives use these pots all the time to
cook and serve...and they are still living.......
 
But just in case, I found this site you might be interested in:

That Rancho Gordo website has great recipes too, a couple even for
nopales.

I just went to the "Rancho Gordo" website and my mouth is
watering!!!  :-)  All the recipes sound delicious!  I have
nopales de castilla growing by the side of my house and tomorrow I plan to go
pick a few, clean them up and make a nopalito salad.  Yum-Yum!  Thanks
again for sharing this website!
