You can sometimes see them at your local market: prickly pears. But most of us probably have no idea what to do with them in the kitchen. In South America and southern Europe the pears are popular as a source of food and are used in both sweet compotes and savoury dishes. The prickly pear (or nopal cactus) is now also gaining in popularity in our part of the world. And in the United States the fruit’s flesh is now being hailed as the latest superfood!
