I've made prickly pear jelly for years and wanted to try something new. Against my better judgement I tried this recipe although it made absolutely no sense to think that baking what is essentially prickly pear syrup for five minutes and letting it cool would magically turn it into solid edible candy. I wasted precious prickly pear juice and perfectly good parchment paper (and of course sugar) on this ridiculous "recipe " made a mess in my oven and stunk up my kitchen with burnt syrup. Please do not try this at home.:-( Read More
