We recently purchased a popsicle mold so that we can treat ourselves to 'healthy' confections. For the first batch, we combined 10 oz of raspberries, 10 oz of blackberries, and one half-cup sugar. Since the berries were frozen (from last season), we mixed the first three ingredients and let the berries thaw for several hours. We then blended everything together, added 2 tbsp of lemon juice, and froze them.
The end result was quite yummy!
Yesterday, we borrowed Paletas, by Fany Gerson, from our local library. I read her recipes for fruit paletas and noticed two major differences:
- Her recipes include a small amount of water
- For the strawberry paletas, her recipe recommends cooking the mixture for five minutes
