If you are a fan of organic products you will definitely be able to find local fruits, usually figs and prickly pears (fragosika in Greek).

There are plenty after the end of July.

What can we say about prickly pear? That it has the most wonderful color, that it is a delicious and nutritious treasure, that it is a pity that we do not use it more while it thrives so easily in our island?

Prickly pear is a fruit with several beneficial properties and many nutrients. It has a high content of vitamin C, but also copper, potassium, calcium and especially magnesium.

The Symian housewives, with the help of corn flour, turn it into a kind of sweet and soft cream, “misokofti”, which they make from the juice of boiled ripe prickly pears, which they keep in the refrigerator. The recipe is very simple, a little care is needed to remove the skin. The taste and aroma are perfect, the color is really something else!

If you are lucky, maybe as a dessert in one of the most sought after restaurants on the island, you can be treated to it instead of fresh fruit!
