Maryellen: Here are some recipes from Native Peoples Magazine, using
mesquite meal. I got these from their web site: Preheat oven to 350øF. In a mixing
bowl, combine graham cracker crumbs, mesquite meal, butter, 1
tablespoon honey, and cinnamon. Using fingers, press mixture evenly on
bottom and half way up sides of 9-inch spring-form pan. Set aside. In
large mixing bowl, with mixer at high speed, beat cream cheese,
remaining honey, and vanilla until creamy. Beat in eggs, one at a
time, mixing well. Stir in sour cream. Pour batter into crust; bake 50
to 60 minutes, until center sets. Turn off oven, leaving door slightly
ajar. Leave cake in oven 1 hour; remove and allow to cool. Chill at
least 2 hours; then prepare glaze and peel and slice peaches. Arrange
peaches on top of cake and spoon over glaze. Return to refrigerator
until ready to serve. Makes 8 to 10 servings. Prickly Pear Glaze:
Combine 1/4 cup apple juice and cornstarch. In saucepan, combine
remaining apple juice, prickly pear juice, and honey. Stir over medium
heat until honey melts. Add cornstarch mixture and stir until mixture
boils, thickens, and turns clear. Cook one minute and set aside to
cool slightly. Posted to FOODWINE Digest by Anne Goldberg
