Prickly Pear Jam
After reading that prickly pears are covered with barely visible spines I was a bit shaky. I put on a pair of work gloves and rubbed the spines from the fruit and then rinsed them under running water. The texture reminds me of a kiwi, and I added a bit of amaretto to kick it up a notch. This small batch yields 1 quart and 1 pint.
