Cactus Candies from British Pathe (1930)

This time of year, our Chihuahuan Desert is treated to the glory of blooming cactus (and many of them can be seen at Fort Davis' Chihuahuan Desert Nature Center), so it was especially delightful to find this collection of Texas-based video's in British Pathe's YouTube channel.

Enjoy this brief look from 1930 at the process of making cactus candy in Texas, in the Mexican tradition!
