Ingredients

  • Finely grated zest of 1 orange
  • ¼ Cup plus 2 tablespoons of granulated sugar
  • 4 Tablespoons water
  • 2 ½ Cups freshly squeezed orange juice (from about 6 oranges)
  • 1/3 freshly squeezed lemon juice (from about 3 lemons)

Directions

Put the orange zest, sugar and water in a small saucepan and bring to a simmer. Simmer until the sugar has dissolved, then stir the syrup into the orange and lemon juices.

Pour the mixture into your icepop molds, leaving ¼ inch at the top to allow the mixture to expand when it freezes. Insert the ice pop sticks and freeze.

Orange Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Orange Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
