Noticed mold forming in my crock of mashed prickly pears, so this time I just scooped off the top, found a plate that fit the crock fairly well, and squeezed out as much juice as I could, throwing the rest of the fruit away. Then used a funnel to get the juice, along with the pulp still left in it, into a gallon jug. Slapped an airlock on it and it's bubbling away. I'm about ready to admit defeat on coming up with an easy but primitive method of brewing colonche.
