Fresh Strawberry Ice Pops

Fresh Strawberry Ice Pops. Since it’s strawberry season, my family and I ventured out to the farm to pick some fresh in season strawberries. We wanted the pick of the litter so we left the house at the crack of dawn hoping to be the first ones there.  Sadly we weren’t the only ones, who wanted to get an early start, the farm was packed.

It rained the night before, so the grounds were fairly wet which according to the farmer makes it a perfect time to harvest. We were encouraged to walk around, explore the different types of strawberries they had, while doing a taste test.

Two hours later, we had more strawberries than we could ever had asked for. We went home, and I spent the rest of the weekend, canning, baking, and juicing. By Sunday night, I had made strawberry cream cheese hand pies, strawberry jam, strawberry pie, strawberry lemonade, strawberry ice cream and these yummy Fresh Strawberry Ice Pops. The kids couldn’t have asked for a better weekend.

    Those look delicious. We have a small strawberry patch in our yard. We picked about three quarts this weekend and I need to make some freezer jam. But I think we will make Popsicles too. Thanks for sharing your recipe.
