Ingredients

  • Butter (Animal Fat, Vegetable Oil)
  • Prickly Pear
  • Salt

Directions

Remove needles from the prickley pear 'paddles'. I usually handle the paddles with pliers and break the needles off then singe the smaller needles off over the campfire.
Cut the paddles into 1/4" strips.
Season with a sprinkle of salt and sauté in butter until tender.
Note: The taste is akin to green beans. As an option, you can prepare as above and add Stewed tomatoes and onion with a little comino and touch of garlic. BON APPETITE !!
