    Title: Cactus Candy
    Categories: Five, Candies, Citrus
    Yield: 6 Servings

    2 qt Cactus cubes

    3 c Granulated sugar
    1 c Water
    2 tb Orange juice
    1 tb Lemon juice

    Select prickly pear cactus (or small barrel cactus if you
    own this type of cactus, since it's illegal to remove it
    from the desert). Remove spines and outside layer with
    large knife. Cut pulp across in slices one-inch thick.
    Soak overnight in cold water. Remove from water, cut in 1"
    cubes and cook in boiling water til tender. Drain.

    Heat all ingredients until sugar is dissolved. Then add
    cactus. Cook slowly in the following syrup until nearly
    all the syrup is absorbed. Do not scorch!

    Remove cactus from syrup, drain and roll in granulated or
    powdered sugar. For colored cactus candy, any vegetable
    food coloring may be added to the syrup.
