A tray of cactus fruit, which Lissa is processing for later holiday treats. She harvested what must be about 50 pounds (~100 kg) from the prickly pear in the front yard this morning. The picture doesn’t quite do justice to the lovely purple color. She cooks it down and mashes it into a lovely juice – delicate flavor, gorgeous fuschia.
They make a tremendous addition to your standard margarita, by the way.
