Cook slowly in the following syrup until nearly all the syrup is absorbed. Do not scorch!

SYRUP for 2 QUARTS of CACTUS CUBES Heat all ingredients until sugar is dissolved. Then add cactus. Remover cactus from syrup, drain and roll in granulated or powdered sugar. For colored cactus candy, any vegetable food coloring may be added to the syrup.
