"Nicuatole"

1 lb. (½ kg) corn kernels
2 lb. (1 kg) sugar
15 fragrant prickly pears

Preparation:
Cook corn in unsalted water. Remove from heat, cool, and grind or blend.

Dissolve ground corn well in 6.3 pints (3 liters) of water. Strain through a cloth.

Add sugar and cook, stirring constantly to avoid sticking.

As mixture is thickening, dissolve prickly pears in half a liter of water and add to mixture.

Drain through a cloth and continue stirring until thickened (Put a drop of the nicuatole in a cup of water, if it floats, it is well-cooked).

Put in one large dish or several individual ones.

Remove from dish when cold, turn over so the shiny side is on top.
