Peach Thyme Popsicles

By Amy Maltzan

This basic recipe for popsicles lends itself well to experimentation. Use cream instead of orange juice and omit the thyme for a creamsicle-like treat; substitute Riesling for the juice and omit the vanilla for a grown-up treat.

Makes eight 3 ounce popsicles.

1 1⁄4 pounds ripe peaches, (3–4 medium), halved and pitted

Juice of 1 lemon

1⁄4 cup freshly-squeezed orange juice

1⁄4 cup sugar, or to taste

1⁄4 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 teaspoons thyme leaves

In a food processor or by hand, coarsely chop the peaches. Set 1 cup of the chopped peaches aside.

Puree the remaining chopped peaches with the lemon juice, water (or other liquid), and sugar to taste until smooth. Stir in the vanilla, thyme leaves (if using) and reserved chopped peaches.

Freeze in popsicle molds until firm.
