Road Trip: Lyman Orchards and Strawberry Popsicles

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.

Do you have a favorite popsicle recipe you would like to share? Leave a comment below or reach out privately on the contribute page.  I would love to feature more.
