Make ice lollies with ZOKU: Pickle Juice Pops
To make pickle pops, all you need is pickles (aka gherkins) in their brine. We recommend Koo and Goldcrest brands – The Goldcrest has very clear juice which goes white, whilst Koo (Sweet & Sour) has a lovely greenish tinge. Basically, use your favourite jar of pickles. Or make your own, with this easy step by step guice to pickle making.
Making pickle pops:
1. Either cut slices of pickles, or cut shapes from the slices, and stick them to the sides of the slots, using a toothpick or the wand from the Zoku Toolkit.
2. Insert sticks, fill with the juice/brine from the pickle jar and wait till they are frozen (the usual 7 minutes). To spruce and spice things up, try cutting some shapes (like hearts, sweet) from beetroot slices for a striking contrast mid-lolly.
For a popping sweet & sour effect layered deep crimson blueberry juice with the brine (the middle layer works well as a combination of the two).
