I found a recipe that I more or less followed.
Prickly Pear Cactus Jelly
2 1/2 cups prickly pear cactus juice
1/2 cup lemon juice
5 cups sugar
1 box of powdered pectin (18 teaspoons-note that not all pectin brands contain the same amount in a box, so measure it out to make sure)
Hard boil cactus fruit juice, pectin and lemon juice for 3 minutes. Add sugar and bring back to a hard boil for 2 minutes or until the jell point is reached.
Put in canning jars, seal and heat process for 10 minutes.
