we spent a few days at my family’s cabin in twain harte… went thrifting in nearby sonora, and i got some great baby things… and i did a few projects i’ve been wanting to try. one was yogurt popsicles– like ones i’ve been seeing on food blogs for years. i looked up a few recipes (including this one) for amounts, and then winged it. my first batch was good, but my second batch was sooo good! i also made sierra cedar and penny royal bundles inspired by ones i saw at the heath store from juniper ridge.
a loose recipe for delicious yogurt pops:
-mix 2-3 cups greek yogurt with sugar (to taste). then add a bit more sugar since it won’t seems as sweet when it’s frozen.
– remove skin and slice fruit. i used peaches, blackberries, and plums (peaches worked best). cook fruit and more sugar (to taste) in a sauce pan for just a few minutes to melt sugar. with my second batch i didn’t take the skin off and then ran it through a food mill.
-alternate spooning the yogurt and fruit mixtures into 3oz dixie cups. the small popsicles taste better than the large, i found out. insert a popsicle stick and give the mixtures a little stir. the sticks will stand up straight on their own since the yogurt is thick. place them in the freezer for several hours or until they freeze.
