Cucuzza and ficurinia  - Zucchine e fichi d'India

"Mangiamo!! - Let's eat - in Sicilian Ammuccamu!!!

One question , to me at first quite astonishing, was : 

"What do you do with these? "
a northen European tourist asked me pointing out at preackly pears!!

"WE EAT THEM......."

  1. Such a great & colorful photo of prickly pears! And Lucia, when you tell tourists "we eat them," please also add that YOU SHOULD NOT JUST BIT INTO THEM! (Foreigners have been known to do this, ouch). I myself did not bite into one, but the first time I purchased them, I attempted to peel them and got the spines in my fingers, and they ached for days...
