    Warning: Prickly Pear paddles have prickles! Wear gloves!

    Where there is a nodule there will be a prickle. Use a potato peeler to remove the nodule with the prickle, then rinse under cold water. 

    We love them on the BBQ, simply oil them and sprinkle with salt, char grill then slice and put in salads or tacos.

    We recommend reading Pati Jinich's website page on cleaning and cooking, she has a great way to sear them in a pan.
