Ingredients (serves 6):
- 2 and ½ cups frozen or fresh blackberries (or any other fruit, but preferable some kind of berry)
- 1/3 cup sugar (or to the taste)
- 1/3 cup hot water
1. Place the fruit and sugar in a food processor or a blender. Add hot water and beat for several minutes, until the mixture turns into a purée. Pass through a sieve, pressing well, and discard seeds.
2. Transfer the mixture to the glasses and place the pop sticks. Freeze for at least 4 hours.
3. To release the ice pops, dip the glasses in warm water for a few seconds.
The History of Popsicles
Popsicles celebratemore than a century of keeping you cool. Find out who invented the popsicle (by accident, no less), and how this yummyfrozen treathas changed over the past 100 years.
In 1905, eleven-year-old Frank Epperson left a cup filled with powdered soda, water, and a stirring stick on his San Francisco porch. That night, low temperatures caused the mixture to freeze — and a summertime staple was born. Today, two billion Popsicles are sold every year.
1923: Epperson debuts his "Epsicle" at an Alameda, California, park. His children, who call the creation Pop's 'sicle, persuade him to change the name. Two years later, Epperson partners with the Joe Lowe Company of New York, which distributes the treats around the country.
1939: The brand introduces its mascot, a boy dubbed Popsicle Pete, who appears in ads for the next five decades.
1986: The company retires its two-stick variety (first sold during the Great Depression for a nickel) on the advice of moms, who deem it too messy.
2010 Popsicle — now owned by Unilever and made at plants in Nevada, Maryland, and Missouri — releases new Jolly Rancher — flavoured pops, but classic cherry still ranks as the most popular.
