since the barrel cactus fruits turned out to be so slimy, like okra, decided to slice them and fry them in batter like okra. not bad, but of course sour. don't quite know what to do about that; sugar would ruin it for me.

for the "zero waste" archives: after you've made the last pancake and there's still batter in the bowl, take a piece or 3 of the first pancake and wipe out the bowl with it, throwing the pieces back in the pan. quit when there's only about a teaspoon or less of unused batter. those pancake scraps will look a little strange but taste just as good, and you've wasted less food.
