Prickly Pear Fruit

We are rapidly coming up on the time when Prickly Pear fruit will be ripe and ready for picking. Labor Day is our traditional time to go out into the desert with buckets and pick the fruit. We then cook it down in a steam juicer to extract all the juice and use that to make syrup and jelly. I must say that the jelly is delicious and the most beautiful color.
