Peach-Mint PopsiclesPosted: July 25, 2013
Time for another batch of popsicles!
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?
Then pour into the popsicle molds….
Freeze up, babies!
24 hours later….
….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!
