One of my favorite times of the year is when Lyman Orchards Pick Your Own season opens. I still remember going blueberry picking with my family and loading up the basement freezer with numerous bags to use for blueberry pie at Christmas. When I had my son I was determined to find an orchard so he could have a similar experience and create our own tradition. This was our second year going to the Lyman Orchards to pick strawberries and I he loved it even more than last year. Prior to the orchard being open I already knew what I wanted to make using the freshly picked strawberries, popsicles. Making homemade popsicles was new to me, but it turns out it was probably one of the easiest things I have made. The only additional step I took from the original recipe was using the immersion blender to remove the remaining larger chunks. A stand blender would yield the same result.
