How to store
Keep prickly pears in the refrigerator, where they can be kept for about 1 week.
How to eat
Pay close attention to the small thorns on the outside of prickly pears. They are not easily visible and appear soft, but can irritate the skin. Therefore, first prick the prickly pear on a fork and put it on a plate. Peal the skin apart with a knife. You can dice the prickly pear through a fruit salad, serve it in slices with cheese or raw ham, or make a compote for a stew.
