A Dessert with Prickly Pears
Not long ago, I lamented the lack of dessert recipes in my bag of tricks. But I'd forgotten a favorite using prickly pears (tunas) and Sambuca Romana from the book Frida's Fiestas. The original recipe calls for rounds of cleaned tunas to be chilled with a healthy dose of Sambuca Romana. It sounds odd but it works well and it's easy to do. I was short the Sambuca, but I did have some excellent calvados on hand, it and was glorious, maybe even better than with Sambuca. Remember, you eat the little stones along with the fruit.
