bonjour loulou - i would be very interested what you can do with them :)lately, at the market, they sell them by the caisse ... but i never know what next with them?
They make a wonderful purée with which you can make margaritas (a personal favorite) Prickly Pear PureeWash and peel ripe prickly pears. Cut in half with a knife and scoop out the seeds. Force the raw pulp through a medium to fine strainer. Freeze either fruit pulp or the puree. Simply pack into freezer containers and seal. Thaw before using.ORPrickly Pear Marmalade 4 cups chopped prickly pears 1 cup sliced lemon 2 oranges 1 or more cups of sugar (see below)Chop orange peel and pulp. Add 4 cups water to lemon and orange. Let stand 12 to 18 hours in a cool place. Boil until peel is tender. Cool. Measure lemon, orange and water in which cooked. Add chopped prickly pears and 1 cup of sugar for each cup of combined pear, lemon, orange and water. Boil to the jellying point. Pour, boiling hot, into hot jars. Seal at once.
I second using them to make the margarita's. When we lived in Ft. Lauderdale there was a S.W. restaurant that served them, they were wonderful. dj
