Dealing with prickly pears

Oct135 My cactus has gone nuts this year and I have dozens and dozens of prickly pears and a constant stream of paddles. I'm thinking of selling the pears at market but how do you clean them? Oct025 After a little web research, it seems that a culinary torch works best. I had pretty good luck with a burner from my range. Oct030 One of the sites suggested water afterwards and the stinging in my hands makes me think this is right. Oct034 But whatever the pain, it's worth it. You can eat the tuna, seeds and all, and it's a great snack. You can also blend it with water, a little sugar and some lime for an agua fresca.
