Last month I saw a recipe for prickly pear lemonade on the Cooking With a Wallflower blog, and I was intrigued. So today I bought some cactus fruit and Kieran and I decided to make the drink after school. He likes it because of the shocking color.
Kieran was eager to help, so I let him scoop the innards out of the prickly pear fruit after I’d cut it in half. He also enjoyed running the blender at high speed to separate out the seeds. We strained it into a pitcher and drank it while we played chess.
It was a lovely evening together.
