Jars of Renewal: Prickly Pear Syrup

September 12th

How I used the rest of those prickly pear

Five more recycled jars

I promise this is my last prickly pear post for a bit. I used the remaining prickly pear tunas last night for the latest Jars of Renewal project: syrup! Great in margaritas, other mixed drinks and even on pancakes. Yum.

To local gardeners, a reminder that tomorrow’s veggie class series at the Phoenix Farmer’s Market is worth the drive and $10. I’m thinking a big bowl of oatmeal at Matt’s beforehand is just what the happy hippie ordered.

Happy Friday friends!

  1. Oh that syrup looks delicious and would have multiple uses. Great idea! I love the color the pp make — really pretty. I have enjoyed your posts on this subject and hope I come across some prickly pears up this way. A customer used to bring them to me from her garden when I had the eatery at Stanford.

  2. Yum…looks good to me.

    Pass the tequila!

  3. Oh my goodness, what a gorgeous color! Reminds me of making crabapple jelly. The pink shirt is very nicely coordinated as well.
    I really need to think of something to can. I have a whole tree full of asian pears no one likes. Maybe asian pear jam would be good 🙂

  4. OMG. I would LOVE that syrup. Margaritas? Pancakes? Two of my faves! 🙂

  5. Yum! Love the Voss bottle. I too appreciate the pink shirt. Looks like it was dyed with the p. pears!

  6. Kelli,

  8. It looks like you dyed the shirt with it, too. Very nice.

  9. YUM!!! Looks sooooooo good. Now I really have to find me some prickley pears!!

  10. Will you share your prickly pear syrup recipe? I’d love to make some and yours looks great!
