Up Close and Spiney


Up close landscape of a prickley pear. Ubiquitous and etable. It is not unusual to see prickley pear pads with bite-sized chunks taken out of them, by deer and other wild animals. Humans have eaten them too for centuries, both the pads and the fruits (without the spines!). Of course these days most of us are now hunter-gatherers only in supermarkets and would not think of eating anything that grew out in the desert.

On the other hand some brave soul came up with this recipe for Prickley Pear Brownies.
