Recipe via Family Fresh Cooking
Nothing is more refreshing for your 4th of July BBQ than homemade Popsicles.
Add organic edible flowers to the recipe and they are not only yummy, but beautiful to look at as well.
It is a super simple recipe and will satisfy the entire family.
• 16 ounces Cold Water
• 1 ounce Orange Blossom Water
• 1 teaspoon Lemon Juice
• Plain Stevia Drops or your favorite natural sweetener to taste (Honey would be great too) You can use one full dropper of stevia.
• a handful of Organic Edible Flowers, rinsed and remove petals (Marigolds, dandelions, chive flowers, and basil flowers all can be grown in our woolly pockets)
Have pop molds handy and make sure you have room in your freezer. Combine water, orange blossom water and lemon juice. Sweeten to taste. Pour mixture into molds. Freeze without sticks and petals for about 1 hour. Remove from freezer and add flower petals. You can push them into the molds with the help of a long, skinny spoon or pop stick. Make sure the flowers are scattered throughout the pops. Add sticks and freeze for 2-3 hours more until solid.
