Homemade Prickly Pear Cactus Jelly

Prickly Pear Cactus JellyPrickly pear cactus fruit grows wild in Arizona's Southwest Sonoran Desert. Each pear is hand picked and processed naturally to collect the precious juice of this exotic, delicious fruit. Each jar of cactus jelly is handmade with loving care. Only 1,000 jars of this precious jelly will be made ... and purchasers will receive their jelly in time for Father's Day 2009. The price includes shipping and handling.
