These creamy honeyed peach pops were made from peaches friends brought us from their recent visit to Mercier Orchards, which is one of my favorite places. I wrote about them last fall when we went apple picking and hope to see what they have to offer this weekend . And, they were made using our new Zoku quick pop maker. We happened by these at a discount store a good bit less expensive than there original price, and with grand kids visiting this summer, they seemed like a good idea.
The recipe for this simply involved cutting up peaches, adding a sprinkle of citric acid to keep them pretty, and stirring in some honey and milk. My ingredients were cold, so I didn’t refrigerate the mixture before using the Zoku pop maker, so they took a couple of extra minutes. The pop maker worked well and as described. If you buy one of these my only suggestion is that you chop any fruit you add very small. A lot of my pieces of peach were too big to fit, and I would have liked more peaches in the pops. This recipe is only for two pops, but you could easily double it or triple it. I you can definitely freeze them the conventional way in the freezer. It just takes longer.
