Chances are you live a stone’s throw away from a Thai restaurant in your neighborhood, and you’ve got a go-to local favorite for pad thai. These days I often find myself traveling north of Berkeley, where there’s quite a few wonderful Thai eateries clustered in Albany, El Cerrito and San Pablo locales.
Like I said in my Fig and Sour Cream Popsicle recipe, popsicles are my new favorite food to make. I just love how creative I can be with them. I had been looking forward to pomegranate season as I didn’t really use them in recipes at all last year. So the idea of freezing them to extend the season was of interest to me. And look how they turned out! The seeds inside the popsicle are just gorgeous, right?
Popsicles are quite possibly my new favorite thing to make. I simply love how creative you can be with them. Seriously, there are no limits. I’ve used tea, cake, booze, you name it…and I have made a popsicle with it. I had planned for these figs be soaked in bourbon but they were so fresh and bursting with flavor, that it broke my heart just to freeze them. I didn’t want anything else to alter their taste. So I refrained and I am glad I did. These pops are scrumptious!
Still have too many plums? It’s time to grab the little wooden sticks and start making plum popsicles. Raw or roasted, flavored with cardamom, vanilla, or basil, these purple pops can cool off even the hottest summer afternoon, no plastic wrapper required.
