The Story Of PCR Jellies

People often ask us about our name Pinche Cactus Ranch so we have to start back in the Fall of 2016 while my husband and I were homesteading our ranch.  It is located in Rocksprings, Tx and is used Primarily for hunting and growing our produce. It is there where our Specialty Jelly business started its roots.

While preparing our land for permanent structures to be built we realized not only did we have an abundance of prickly pear cactus, but also how difficult they were to eradicate. Being new land owners we didnt have the funds for a tractor so removing the prickly pear cactus had to be done by hand with shovels and pitchforks.  As you can imagine after 2 days of cactus removal the name Pinche Cactus was born.  Shortly after the ranch had its name we discovered the prickly pear tuna which is the purple fruit that is produced by the cactus usually July-September.  Knowing we couldnt let this fruit that was gifted to us in abundance go to waste we decided to go back to an old hobby and that was canning & making jellies together.   After gifting our delicious new jelly to family & friends our hobby quickly grew into something more and is now what we call Pinche Cactus Ranch Specialty Jellies. 

Being gardners & having a love for living off the land we both knew we wanted to not only make jelly but also produce the fruits and peppers used in making our jelly.  As of today we produce around 70% of all peppers used in our jellies and out source to local farmers for the rest of our produce.  Every jar of jelly is made in small batch to assure quality is in every jar.  Not only do we want to provide a positively addicitive experience. We also want to make sure every jar of PCR Jelly is made fresh with quality ingredients from local farmers.

You can usually find PCR Jellies at Parks Legado Farmers Market & Medical Center Hospital Farmers Market in Odessa Tx.  You can also stop by Priour Varga Feed anytime and scoop up a jar of yummy goodness, 300 West Main Street Rocksprings Tx.
