Prickly Pear FruitHey person, what are you doing with those prickly pear fruits on my blog?

You’re what!? You’re making bread with them. Since when is this a cooking blog?





Cut Prickly Pear Fruit

Person, this is going a little too far. I can see if you were making dog treats maybe. That could go on my blog. But prickly pear bread? Those prickly pear fruits don’t even smell appetizing.

Throw those prickly pears in the garbage and start making me some dog treats.

Wait a minute. What’s that pink stuff you’ve got there? Did Scratchy do that? Let me have a look.

Pink Bread Dough

You’re putting that in the oven? What about the dog treats?


Hey, that stuff is starting to smell good.

Pink Prickly Pear Bread

You mean I get to eat some of this?

Hey person, you’ve got some more prickly pear fruits left. What are you going to make next?

      Sweet Kitten, food is good. As long as I get to eat some of it I don’t mind if it goes on my blog.

    Never heard of making break with prickly pears. Interesting. Does it taste good? Is it a sweet tasting bread? Very curious here.

      Susan, the bread is good but the recipe my person used only has a little honey and isn’t very sweet. My person says if she does something with prickly pears again she probably won’t make bread. It uses the chunks and most other recipes she found use the juice. The fruit has tons of seeds. They’re very little and hard and it’s almost impossible to get every one of them out of the chunks of fruit. She’s afraid someone might break a tooth on one.

    Prickly pear dog cookies could be next!

      Kat n Collies, that sounds yummy. I’ll have to get my person working on a recipe for prickly pear dog cookies.

    Yummy! Candy or jelly next?…ok dog cookies on the schedule…

    • Bongo

      Karen, my person says she can buy prickly pear candy and jelly at the tourist shops around here, so she tried something else. I’m still waiting for the dog cookies though.

    Ah – now I’ve been enlightened & that looks pretty good to me. Bongo I’m betting you could “talk” your way into getting some homemade treats – with that face who would refuse you?

    • Bongo

      September 13, 2012 at 6:41 pm

      Lola, I guess I’ll have to try my charm on my person. Prickly pear dog treats sound really good.

    That looks yummy!

      Misaki, it was yummy. I’m waiting for my person to get the second loaf out of the freezer so I can have some more.

    Always expanding your repertoire, Bongo! Never say never to what may go into your blog :).

    • Bongo

      September 13, 2012 at 6:43 pm

      Roberta, I guess I learned that. As long as I get some of the food it can go on my blog any time. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

    That sounds very interesting and it looks good 🙂

      Misty Shores, it was good. My person is still hiding some in the freezer. I’ve got to figure out how to get in there.

    Those pears look very strange I wouldn’t have know you could eat them. The bread looked great, did it taste good??

    • Bongo

      September 14, 2012 at 12:04 am

      Lexie and Mica, you’ve got to make sure you get all the pricklers off those pears before you eat them, but they made some good bread.

    Yes!, you got something of that pricklypearpie 🙂

      Angles Whisper, it was good but I still think my person should make some prickly pear dog treats.

    *drools drools* The prickly pear bread looks very yummy! and the fruit itself seems to be delicious, too! Does it taste like what? a little bit sour? or sweet? How does it smell before baking and after?
    Prickly pear looks like dragon fruit except the color of pulp as dragon fruit’s is white.
    very curious about the taste! 🙂
    *whisper* How did sorbe taste, Bongo? Woof?

    • Bongo

      September 14, 2012 at 11:47 am

      Kevin, all that prickly pear stuff was really good, but the prickly pears themselves don’t seem to have a lot of flavor. I could taste the other stuff – orange juice in the bread and peaches and honey in the sorbet – more.

    This is wonderful news, Bongo, and love your mug face doing the taste test! I bet you would be a great food reviewer…:)

    • Bongo

      September 14, 2012 at 11:48 am

      Sunshine, I think food reviewer would be a great job. Maybe I should change my blog so I could eat different things all the time.

      • Sunshine

        September 14, 2012 at 12:19 pm

        I Love your thinking, Bongo!

    How does prickly pear tastes? 😮

    • Bongo

      September 14, 2012 at 11:49 am

      Dianda, the prickly pear fruit doesn’t have a lot of flavor by itself. I could taste the other things in the bread more.

    Looks yummy Bongo. I am jealous, I want some too. You what? You ate it all? Hope you didnt get stomach ache again! Your person is very talented.

    • Bongo

      September 14, 2012 at 11:52 am

      Thanks Susan. I would have eaten it all if my person had left it on the counter. But she stashed it where I couldn’t get to it. I’m so disappointed.

    That looks yummy. Will you share, Bongo?

      Sandra, come on over. I think my person still has a loaf stashed in the freezer.

    It looks good. I love the color. The last two pictures are especially good!

    • Bongo

      September 15, 2012 at 11:34 am

      Thanks Bassa, it was good. I love it when I get to post with food – because that means I get to eat it.

      Collies, my blog can be a food blog anytime as long as I get to eat the food.

      YouKai, come on over. My person hid some of it from me in the freezer.

    That bread looks yummy, Bongo…you’re one lucky pooch.

    • Bongo

      October 10, 2012 at 3:08 pm

      Zen and Genki, I guess there is an advantage to letting my person put her baking stuff on my blog. Otherwise I’d probably never get a sample. And it was good.
