Hiking around Arizona in late June, you’re bound to see tons of prickly pears fresh and ripe on the saguaro cacti. If you’ve never eaten prickly pear straight from the cactus, you are missing out. The process is simple, but can seem scary if you’ve never messed with a cactus before. All you have to do is remove all of the spikes before handling, just use a thick towel or gloves to hold the fruit and a sharp knife to cut them away. Inside, you’ll find a deliciously sweet fruit reminiscent of strawberries and watermelon. If that sounds like too much work, try this Prickly Pear Cactus Jelly from Cactus Candy Company instead. They are based out of Phoenix and beyond jelly, they produce high quality cactus candies, like lollipops and gummies.
