Ethnobotanist Martha Ames Burgess of Flor de Mayo Arts shows how to harvest, process, preserve and cook with cholla buds, a traditional food of the Native Peoples of the Sonoran Desert. Cholla buds have high available calcium and complex carbohydrates to help balance blood sugar levels and provide sustained energy.
