THURSDAY, JULY 8 NATIONAL FREEZER POP DAY Cool off with ice pops Have some overripe fruit you want to use up? Use it to make delicious ice pops, encourages blogger Tracy Yabiku, who shares recipes at BakingMischief.com. The secret: “Make your Popsicles a little sweeter than you think they should be,” she says. “We perceive frozen foods as less sweet than they are, so for Popsicles that really pop with flavor, they should taste a bit too sweet before you freeze them.” Her easy to-do: Blend fruit with a little water or juice, add honey (for extra sweetness), pour it into ice pop molds, freeze and enjoy!
