Prickly pears

If you are friends with organic products you will definitely be able to find local fruits, usually figs and the prickly pear cactus fruit. There are plenty after the end of July. The Symian housewives, with the help of niseste or corn flour, turn it into a kind of sweet cream that they make from the juice of boiled prickly pears, sugar and keep them in the refrigerator. If you are lucky as a dessert in one of the most sought after restaurants on the island, they can treat you instead of fresh fruit.
