Thank you Chicagokp!

Jason thanks! The pasture pic was from earlier this summer. It's not that green now but better than last year. :)

Thanks for the idea!
Thank you Tom! I just get a good char on them and make sure they are heated through. They do have that "okra" thing going on when sliced but you can rinse them before using if you want.
They are not strong flavored so any kind of sauce or dressing works well with them. (hope that makes sense. lol) Good luck!

Thank you Jeanie!!!
Mike thanks! You can hold them over a flame to burn many of the bigger thorns off but scraping really works well.

Thanks for sharing!
Thanks Ijustwantedtolookatpics! I hope you get to see some in the wild one day.

Great looking food. It has been forever since I have had prickly pear. I would definitely love to have some of that jelly!

Thank you friends!
JD it is hard to describe! Kind of takes on the flavor of what spices you use with it. :)
