● 1 kg prickly pears, peeled
● 80 g water
● 200 g sugar
● juice of 1 lemon

Carefully peel the prickly pears, paying close attention to its thorns and fine needles.
Cut into small pieces and put in a large bowl, add the water and puree with an immersion blender or in the blender.
Next, strain them through a fine sieve reserving just the pureed flesh of the fruit without the seeds.
Put this in a pot with the sugar and lemon juice and bring to a boil.
Once the pot starts to boil remove any foam from the surface using a slotted spoon.
Boil for about 20-25 minutes, depending on the amount, and even longer if necessary.
To see if the jam has the desired consistency, put some on a saucer and allow to cool.
Once it has cooled tilt the plate slightly and if it is not runny, the jam is ready.
Store in sterilized jars.
