Prickly Pear Tea ~ Part I

One of my Christmas presents from my mother was " Prickly Pear Tea ".




The ' prickly pear ' is a cactus here in the desert that produces a fruit by the same name.




I remember long ago making prickly pear jelly with my brownie troop.




I was fascinated by the way the needles were separated from the fruit.




Although the prickly pear grows here, it is a delicacy with a wonderful sweet taste.




My mother said she purchased this tea at the Desert Botanical Gardens.


 


I have a few more pictures that I will show you in my next post so stay tuned.

Prickly pears grow here in Australia as well, although I have never tasted them. Too many prickles.

I live here in AZ and have never seen this tea. I will for certain purchase some on my next trip to the botanical gardens. Thanks for sharing that!
