Default Almond Ice Pops


Time to start making ice pops and ice cream.
I intended to make caramel ice pops but I had to change my plans and
make almond pops.

Here's what I did
http://www.kokoscornerblog.com/mycor...-ice-pops.html
or
http://tinyurl.com/j8enczv

Here's the recipe I intended to follow but didn't. I will some day
soon though.

@@@@@ Now You're Cooking! Export Format

Paletas de Cajeta, Caramel Ice Pops

desserts

3 cups half and half
1/3 cup sugar
pinch of salt
3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
or 1 vanilla bean split lengthwise
3/4 cup cajeta
1 cup coarsely chopped pecans or walnuts

Combine 1 1/2 cups of the half and half with the sugar and salt in a
saucepan. If using the vanilla bean, scrape the seeds into the mixture
then add the pod.
Cook over medium heat, stirring, until the sugar has dissolved.
Remove from the heat and add stir in the cajeta and the remaining 1
1/2 cups of half and half.
If using vanilla extract, stir it in at this point.
Let cool slightly, then discard the vanilla bean pod and refrigerate
until completely chilled.
Divide the mixture among the molds leaving enough room for the pecans.
If using conventional molds, don't snap on the lids yet. Freeze until
the mixture has a slushy consistency
about 30 minutes. This will prevent the pecans from sinking to the
bottom.
Drop the pecans into the ice pops dividing them evenly among the
molds. If they float to the top, push them down with a small spoon or
ice pop stick.
If using conventional molds, snap on the lids add the sticks and
freeze until solid about 3 to 4 hours.
If using glass or other unconventional molds freeze until pops are
beginning to set, 45 minutes to an hour
then insert sticks and freeze until solid about 3 to 4 hours.

Maybe a little early up here. It snowed over the weekend, and the furnace
is on right now.

I woke up to 23F and snow, already 6" deep and is supposed to
continue until about 7 PM. All my beautiful daffodils are now buried.
It didn't snow a flake all winter and now it's spring and there's
snow... I don't need any stinkin' ice pops.

It is the same here today. I had to get out the snow blower because I
had to get out to the walk in clinic to see about getting the head of a
tick out of my belly. The little bugger was feeding on Saturday night
and when I tried to get him off his head snapped off inside. I had tried
to get it out like you would a splinter, but I just made a mess of it.
As it turned out, the doctor didn't want to dig it out. He said to leave
it, keep it clean and keep an eye on it and it should come out in a few
days. Then he said this was the first tick bite he had seen this year
and added a comment about not expecting them when there is 6 inches of
snow on the ground.

I'm just going for a bike ride. Apparently yesterday, there were some
bikini-clad girls sunbathing by the river.

I was driving in my old neighborhood years ago now in the Central West End of St Louis and I saw two beautiful young ladies one walking a dog and they were jogging. Wearing pretty brief two peise looked like exercose clothing! Lotts skin showing!! That's what I love about living in a college town. College girls! I'm living with one, fron India! :-)

Ah! My worst phobia. Tick questing season must start earlier than I
thought. Don't give blood for a while. You are radioactive to a blood
bank if they know you were fed upon, or at least that was the case in
the seventies. Keep an eye on yourself. Shudder.

[ObFood] I fed my wife tube biscuits with sausage gravy and asparagus
tonight. She swore she liked it. Smart girl!

IMO: biscuits & gravy is the best use for tube biscuits. I don't want
the thick ones, so I buy the cheapest tubes because I want thin ones.

I'm thinking the trash can is the best use. I tried them again. No bueno.
