Cactus Pear Jelly

  • 1 unpeeled lime
  • 4-6 (I had 6) cactus pear 1 1/2-2lb
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar

Slice limes as thin as possible: discard end pieces and seeds. Soak slices in the water for 3 hours (it said longer wouldn't hurt and it ended up being overnight). Peel, deseed and juice the cactus pears. (About 1 1/2 cups o' juice) Add juice to lime/water and bring to a boil. Boil for 5 minutes. Let it cool completely and remove lime slices. Bring to a boil again and stir in sugar. Return to a full boil and let it boil at a rolling boil for 9-13 min. Use a boiling water bath process.
