This week, at Coop, we made Cactus Jelly. I really thought it would be green...goes to show how much I have to learn :-)
I can't resist sharing some of our littlest kiddos learning in the kitchen!
Did you know this part of the cactus is called a "tuna"? Neither did I - it's where the juice for the jelly comes from....
I just love this picture! All hands on deck for this adventure!
This is an authentic "Texan" recipe from a Texan Grandmother... I love handwritten recipes passed down the generations. Note: Write some of your favorites down - BY HAND for your kiddos!!
Our finished product!
Our jelly didn't quite set as expected.. but is was AMAZING on our pancakes the next day!
