I made some watermelon popsicles last week, and finally opened one up today – all kinds of tasty! After reading some unknown internet recipe that suggested adding a cinnamon stick to the boiling sugar syrup, I decided to dump in a random amount of cinnamon powder. The overall effect is almost certainly more cinnamon than God ever intended – rather like a watermelon-based horchata. Mmm.
The popsicle molds (don’t know where they came from) have an exceptionally clever catch-basin at the bottom, to gather up drips. You can drink the melting remnants from a straw. I’d insist that such devices be installed on all disposable popsicle sticks, but it would ruin countless little-kid crafts, so I won’t.
