Wintergreen and Cranberry Ice Pops

Wintergreen leaves take icy and refreshing to a new level in these cranberry-studded pops. If you don't have access to wintergreen, swap in regular mint or omit the herb altogether.

Wintergreen and Cranberry Ice Pops

Source: Martha Stewart Living, August 2011

Ingredients

  • 2 cups water
  • 1/2 cup fresh wintergreen
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup mountain cranberries or regular cranberries

Directions

  1. Bring water and wintergreen to a boil in a small saucepan. Remove from heat, and let stand for 1 hour. Strain mixture through a fine sieve; discard solids.

  2. Return wintergreen water to saucepan over medium-high heat, and add sugar. Bring to a simmer, stirring until sugar dissolves. Add cranberries. Return to a simmer, and cook for 1 minute. Let cool completely.

  3. Puree mixture in a blender, and strain through a fine sieve. (Alternatively, you can skip this step and have whole cranberries in the ice pops.)

  4. Divide mixture evenly among six 3-ounce paper cups. Cover top of each with a baking cup. Secure with twine or a rubber band. Poke a hole into the center of each liner, and insert a 4-inch twig or wooden craft stick. Freeze for at least 5 hours.

Cook's Note

Ice pops can be frozen for up to 1 week.
