Grand Canyon Prickly Pear Tea, with Fresh Squeezed Organic Lemon
Back in November of 2007, Dr Desert Flower and I drove 4 and a 1/2 hours up to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon (after living in Arizona for 3-1/2 months), and after enjoying the spectacular views at sunset, we stopped at the Hermit's Rest gift shop at the far end of the western rim road. I got DDF some kinda opal necklace that she loves to wear... and she got me a bag of Prickly Pear Tea, which I have been rationing slowly but surely. Tonight, home alone on a 55F night, having a cup of warm prickly pear tea with a shot of fresh squeezed organic lemon juice from our backyard, sounded delicious. And indeed, it is! The lemon tree is coming into full ripeness this month. Come visit, and we will send you home with lemons in your luggage!
