Fresh Strawberry Honey Popsicles

Photobucket

I think this has to be one of the most beautiful Popsicles I have ever seen in my life. We were lucky to have used tiny fresh strawberries from our garden, simply cut in half, but if you are using the large, store-bought variety, just slice them 1/8 to 1/4 inch thick. Enjoy!

Ingredients

* 2 cups fresh sliced strawberries
* 4 cups water
* ¾ cup honey
* 2 teaspoons vanilla
* Pinch salt

Directions

1. In a blender, blend water, honey and vanilla for about a minute, until honey is completely dissolved in the water.

2. In Popsicle molds, drop in 4 to 8 strawberry slices, depending on size.

3. Fill in molds with the honey water mixture.

4. Freeze for at least 6 hours. To remove Popsicles, leave out at room temperature for a few minutes or run under cool water for a few seconds.

That salad looks really good too... I have like 5 pints? pounds? of strawberries in my fridge that I got from Walmart for $1.30 a package, been wondering what to do with them!

wow - those are almost too pretty to eat! We love to make popsicles here but I usually blend everything up. I never thought to leave them large like that. I'm sure my kids would love it. Thanks for the great idea!
