harvesting prickly pearsgreenspun.com : LUSENET : Countryside : One Thread
Sorry, submitted this before--must have forgotten entry. Does anyone know of "safe" way to harvest and prepare prickly pears for cooking and eating. They are delicious but brutal and filled with spines. There seems to be a bumper crop this year. Thanks for any help.

I had always heard that the spines were burned off first and then the fruit picked.
