Strawberry Lime Popsicles

strawberry popsicle

Go berry-picking in the Lynden strawberry fields--the same ones you grew up picking in, dirtying your jeans and drinking warm soda at lunchtime. This time, take your children, who have no idea how completely these smells transport you.

When you get home, wash and stem an overflowing quart of strawberries. Put them in a blender or food processor with 1/4 c. sugar, the juice of two large limes, and a splash of water to loosen things up. Blend until very smooth, then pour into a popsicle mold. (I ordered mine on Amazon for about $12 and I love it. The popsicles pop out perfectly every time.) Freeze until firm, 2-3 hours. Makes six. (And makes you the block's most popular mother.)
