Prickly Pear Cactus: The Big Taste - San Tan
San Tan Mountain Regional Park
Known to few, the fruit from the prickly pear cactus are actually quite edible. The neon fruit provide delicious juice that tastes like a cross between all-natural bubblegum (if indeed there is such a thing) and watermelon. The juice is often used to make jam or candy, but works wonders in vinaigrettes for salads, cakes and drinks. Join Jean Groen, author and guest presenter from Boyce Thompson Arboretum, as she shares with you how to prepare unique cactus cuisine. No registration required. Meet inside Nature Center. NOTE: This program is part of the “County Parks are getting Wet ‘n’ Wild this Summer” promotion. At the end of the program, we will give away a free family four-pack (4 free tickets to the Wet ‘n’ Wild Water Park – a $160 value!!)
