Recently I found a great organic strawberry farm near our place. My mom tagged along with us and we all had a lot of fun. We came home with a 7 litre basket full of strawberries and now the big task of what to do with all of the strawberries. Unfortunately the strawberries weren't very sweet but they were very juicy. I gave a shot at a strawberry donut recipe but that was a major fail. Next up was strawberry popsicles! I've been wanting to make popsicles at home for awhile now. These were so simple to make and were really good. You should adjust the amount of sugar to how sweet your strawberries are. I always get weary of adding lemon juice to recipes that I want sweet to I significantly reduced the amount. These were a great treat and I hope you give them a try!
Adapted from The Slow Roasted Italian
1 pound ripe strawberries, washed, hulled and cut in half
1-4 tbsp sugar (this will vary on how sweet your strawberries are)
1/4 tsp lime or lemon juice
In a medium bowl, mix the strawberries and sugar. Let sit for 30 minutes or until the juice has been released. In a food processor, add the strawberries and lemon juice. Puree until smooth. Pour into popsicle moulds and freeze until firm. I left mine in the freezer overnight. This recipe gave me 7 popsicles but this will vary depending on how big your popsicle mould is.
