Making Martha Stewart's recipe for Blueberry Pops is the perfect way to beat the heat and have a nice treat on 4th of July weekend. They're quick, easy, tasty, and the perfect thing to take to a cookout.
- 5 cups blueberries
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- Popsicle sticks
- Molds (we use small cups)
In a blender, puree blueberries with water, sugar, and fresh lemon juice. Strain mixture through a fine-mesh sieve, pressing with a rubber spatula to release as much liquid as possible; discard solids. Add water if needed to yield 3 cups.
Divide among molds; insert popsicle sticks, and freeze until solid, about 3 hours. To remove, dip bottom of molds in warm water for 2 to 3 seconds.
Enjoy! As always, please send recipes you would like to share to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you'll be staying in the area for the weekend, we hope to see you at Smithfield's Friends of the 4th Celebration!
