Even though I live here in the desert, I am always intrigued by some of our local foods. Prickly Pair Cactus for example. You wouldn't think that something so foreboding, so prickly, could be so sweet.
Prickly Pear Macroons
Prickly Pear Sorbet
Coconut Lime Panna Cotta w/Prickly Pear Jellie
And of course, Prickly Pear Margarita
Prickly Pear will be my new January ingredient. It might even make for a deliciously surprising Valentine's Day treat :-)...
