Prickly pear cactus
My prickly pear gets a green bud at the bottom and at the top of the bud it is red, about 1½ inches high then turns into a leaf later. Do you know is this an edible prickly pear? It has prickers and oval shaped about 8″- 10″ pads. It is all about 10 feet tall.
I don’t know of a prickly pear that isn’t edible. You can eat the young, tender pads with the fat, new prickers, or the red fruit that forms after the blossoms fade. — Jackie
For canning hard-boiled eggs, can I use some honey in the vinegar for a sweet and sour taste? If so, may I add honey to taste or is there a specific proportion of honey to vinegar to maintain the proper acidity for the canning?
I wouldn’t add honey to your canned hard-boiled eggs. If you want, once the jar is opened, you could pour out the brine and add honey to taste, then pour the brine back on the eggs and keep the jar in the refrigerator until eaten. — Jackie
