CACTUS PICKLE

Prickly Pear Cactus Medicine: Treatments for Diabetes, Cholesterol, and the Immune System by Ran Knishinsky

2 quarts whole prickly pear fruits
2 cups raw sugar
2/3 cup vinegar
3 ounces red cinnamon candies
1-2 whole cloves (optional)


Remove the skins of the fruits, cut each fruit in half lengthwise, and remove the seeds.

Prepare a syrup by mixing the sugar, vinegar, and cinnamon candies in a pot; bring to a boil.

Cook pear halves until transparent in the syrup.

If you use cloves, put them in a cheesecloth bag so they can be removed before the pickles are put in jars that are equipped with standard canning lids.

Process for 15 minutes in a bath of boiling water.
