In Response to Re: EATING CACTUS:
Thanks for the info Vicki. Lots of the stores around here carry cactus(huge hispanic population around here) in the produce department. Somehow I just can't see myself buying, much less eating, those huge things with the prickly things on them. I did try prickly pears once and even though I made some jelly out of them, they weren't appealing either lol.

HM, I figured that nobody would try this! But really, this is good! When you buy the jar you don't have to clean them although I have done that too. When I first tried this I figured that many a desert visiter that had gotten stranded had tried this and the animals eat it so I just closed my eyes and took a bite and was pleasantly surprised! I've made it for family and company over the years and the reaction is always the same! :)
