• Strawberry, Lime and Black Pepper Popsicles

From the Summer 2016 ShareProduce A Plenty 


Ingredients

  • 4 slightly heaped cups (about 20 oz.) fresh, ripe strawberries, hulled and quartered
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • Juice of 2 limes
  • 1/4-1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper (use less for a barely detectable bite, more if you’d like it more present)
  • Pinch of sea salt

Preparation

  1. Combine the strawberries and sugar in a bowl; let them sit for 15 minutes if they’re really fresh, longer if they’re firm or off-season berries. Transfer mixture to a saucepan and add the water. Bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer, and cook for 5 minutes. Let cool to room temperature.
  2. Once cooled, transfer to a blender or food processor, add the lime juice, pepper and salt and blend until mostly smooth. Divide between popsicle molds, leaving a 1/4-inch space on top to accommodate expansion during freezing.
  3. Freeze for about 5 hours or overnight. Dip in lukewarm water for 10 seconds to unmold each popsicle before serving.
