Peach-Mint Popsicles

Time for another batch of popsicles!

recipe 1

Peaches are beautiful and positively delicious right now, it’s the perfect time to put them to use in frozen form.

I modified the recipe slightly – while I love the idea of the peach-jalapeno combination, I wasn’t ready to commit to 10 popsicles.  Instead, I included mint, which paired nicely but was just subtle enough.  I could have actually added more.  I also didn’t roast the peaches beforehand – the thought of turning on the oven at that particular moment was woefully unpleasant.

And as I look at the recipe again, I realize I neglected to add the lemon juice.  Oopsie, a note for next time.  So I basically completely deviated, but I think these will do just fine. 😉

After simmering for about 20 minutes, I strained the mint leaves out and added the syrup to the puree.  The color is so pretty and peachy.  Fitting, right?

….and I’ve discovered how tricky it is to photograph a popsicle one-handed.  Also, how our basement freezer is not the most powerful so the pops weren’t super solid.

But YUM.  The hint of mint was delightful – a nice little twist, and the chopped peach puree made for great texture.  So easy, and such a treat on these dog days of summer!
