Prickly Pear Jelly

Prickly Pear Jelly


1 package powdered pectin
15 to 30 prickly pears
3 tablespoons lemon juice
3 1/2 cups sugar
6 1/2 pint jars (1 cup)

Cooking Instructions

Remove the peel and slice the fruit into two or three pieces. Transfer to a large pot and add just enough water to cover the fruit.

Bring to a boil.

Turn the heat down to low and simmer for 20 to 25 minutes.

Do not drain the water and mash the fruit using a potato masher or food processor.

Line a strainer with double-thick cheesecloth.

Add the fruit mixture and strain the juice.

Set aside for a few minutes to allow the sediment to settle.

Measure 2-1/2 cups of juice and add back in to pot.

Add pectin and boil for a couple of minutes.

Add in the lemon juice and sugar.

Stir and boil for 5 more minutes.

Fill jars and seal.
