The weather this may behaved like it was november and I’m glad the warm june has finally come and with it the time for homemade ice-cream and popsickles. Our elderberry went out of bloom but I managed to cut the last inflorescences to make these refreshing Elderberry-ginger popsickles.
For 12 popsickles:
- popsickle molds
- 6 large elderberry inflorescences
- piece of ginger
- half lemon
- 1,5l of water
- 2 tbsp of honey
Harvest the inflorescences in a clean environment because you don’t want to rinse them, you want to keep the pollen. Place them in a bowl and pour the water over them.
Peel the lemon and cut the pulp in smaller pieces as well as the peeled ginger. Add to the inflorescences. Cover the bowl with a clean towel and let it soak ideally over night in a cool place. If you can’t then at least 2 hours.
Sieve it into a saucepan, add honey and heat just a little (don’t boil) while stirring so the honey melts.
Pour into the molds and leave it in the freezer until properly solid.
And enjoy the healthy refreshment!
