Nothing says SUMMER more than Popsicles
Ok – I lie. To you there may be something that says “summer” more than a few delicious minutes of heavenly goodness on a stick. BUT, you do have to agree that these Ginger Peach Ice Pops just shout “summer” from the hilltops!
My CSA is in full swing & my Grandmother is visiting from Florida. One of the flavors I associate with my Dad’s Mom is ginger. I don’t know if she was always a lover of ginger, but in recent years she seems to always love ginger (candied ginger, ginger snaps, etc). So when I had a bowl of peaches & wanted to make a easy dessert snack for my parents & Grandma, Oh My Veggie’s beautiful popsicles were just perfect!
Rich thought these were a little too gingery (he associates ginger with sushi and not much else) but I thought they were just perfect – a bit of a ginger bite to them but so sweet and fresh from all that peach – YUM 🙂
Ginger Peach Popsicles
- 2 oz. fresh ginger root, peeled and sliced into thick coins
- ½ c. water
- ⅓ c. sugar
- 2 ripe peaches, pitted and cut into chunks
- Combine ginger, water, and sugar in small saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a simmer and then reduce heat to low. Allow syrup to simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and cool.
- Strain syrup through sieve into blender; discard ginger (or use it elsewhere). Add peaches to blender and blend until smooth. Pour mixture into popsicle molds and freeze until solid
