As Heard on The Daily Gardener Podcast:
Today's book recommendation: The Prickly Pear Cookbook by Carolyn Niethammer
I remember the first time I grew Prickly Pear Cactus in my garden and I fell immediately in love with it.
This charming cookbook celebrates the Prickly Pear Cactus. The spines of the plant actually protect it from being eaten. Fortunately, we’ve found a way around that. The cookbook contains 60 recipes for using the fruit of the cactus, in addition to the pads – all of which are edible and all of which are nutritious. And Niethammer teaches that it is increasingly included in the treatment of diabetes. Niethammer is a wild food expert and a master cook.
