A quick tutorial: Peeling a prickly pear

Last week I posted a story on Instagram about eating a prickly pear for breakfast and I got a few questions about this typically Sicilian delicacy.

So I thought I’d do a quick video tutorial to give you a close look at this extraordinary fruit.

Hope you enjoy it. And be sure to follow my stories on Instagram for daily snippets about life in Sicily. Search rochelledelborrello on Instagram, send me a message to say hi and I’ll write back.

    1. You’re welcome. Some people have also suggested soaking them in water for a few minutes before you peel them. It seems to wash away any prickles that may fly around in the air. I just went ahead and peeled them and it was just fine👍
