    Default Watermelon Popsicles

    We tried something new today. I mashed and blended the last of our
    watermelon and poured the mash and juice into popsicle molds.

    We just put these in the freezer. They are a lovely pink color. I'll
    report back with a taste test tomorrow.

    I nearly lived on a commercial version of that when I was pregnant in
    Florida. I think they must have had some lemon juice in them because they
    were high in vitamin C. They were just the only thing that didn't taste
    dirty to me.

    We used to buy watermelon sherbet years ago but I haven`t seen it in
    grocery stores for at least 25 years. It was delicious. I tried making
    some a few years ago and it was delicious. I had to fake it. I make a
    simple syrup and added a bunch of seeded and strained watermelon and
    then put it in the ice cream maker. It turned out nicely.

    We used to have a place in town that sold all sorts of frozen fresh
    fruit bars (watermelon was my favorite flavor). I really miss it.

    Would that freeze at normal freezer temperatures?

    They would likely be soft.

    Watermelon is mostly water, anyway - sounds good. My favorite
    popsicle was always banana.

    That would stop them from freezing, silly. Just pour it all into a
    glass (Watermelon-tini? Ugh.)

    Depends on the ratio of vodka to other liquid. Vodka is usually 80 proof or
    40% alcohol. Mixed not sure of the ratio necessary.

    80 proof in my freezer gets pretty thick/syrupy. I've poured a goodly
    amount of Crystal Palace into a 20 ounce glass filled with a dozen ice
    cubes and added like 4 ounces of grapefruit juice... sometimes it was
    my second or third and I didn't drink but a few sips from that fresh
    one before I realized it was past 11 PM and I just had to crawl into
    bed. Those glasses came with plastic snap on lids so rather than
    waste it I'd snap on a lid and pop it into the freezer... next morning
    it was rock solid.... and there would be a good 6 ounces of 80 proof
    in there... would take like 8 hours in the fridge before it was half
    defrosted and drinkable. Now some dwarf is gonna blurt out how you
    can't waste Crystal Palace. LOL

    Great idea! I have to come up with something to make for a cookout the
    weekend after next and this just might be what I'm doing. Love it! Can't
    wait to hear the results.

    I made a granita out of half of a huge seedless watermelon yesterday. I
    always put a little bit of vodka in granita as it keeps it from freezing
    too hard. The local pickup truck melons are to die for this year.
    Extremely heavy for their size and very sweet. I used just a little
    Splenda and the juice of a couple of key limes. Came out great.
