    Prickly Pear Jam

    Prickly Pear Jam



    I had GREAT success making/canning Strawberry Jam earlier this year. Now that the local cactus are in full fruit; I am going to invent a Prickly Pear Jelly... I will keep y'all posted on how it turns out!

    It took me about 10 minutes to gather these up, and will be processing them in the next day or two!

    Oh. My! Very tasty!!!!!!


    Ok, it ended up this:

    2 quarts of juice
    6-8 lemons worth of juice
    6 T Low/No-Sugar Pectin
    6 C sugar



    Made 13 pints with one almost-full quart of leftovers for me and Donger to sample.

    Juice: Due to the variations in size and moisture content of the pears, it's hard to gauge how many it takes to make a quart - but I picked about 70-75 pears and got two quarts of juice.

    I also got interrupted while straining the garbage out, and it got to strain for about three hours! The pulp and seeds were practically DRY when I got back. LOL!

    (I pulsed them VERY quickly in the blender, because I had heard that if you break the seeds up, that the juice becomes bitter.)

    Can in hot water bath like raspberry jelly.

    You're in luck, I am going to do it again this week... I and my Father picked about 2/3 of a 5-gallon bucket last night just walking down his driveway!
    What detail do you need?
