Raspberry Popsicles

Now I realize that this recipe will be almost exactly like the blueberry popsicles, but I did have to experiment a bit fot this one. I figured the lime juice was the catalyst to that flavor pop for all fruit. I was wrong. Raspberries and lime juice are gross. The flavor is just wrong. The perfect flavor booster for raspberries is pineapple juice! It takes more raspberries for this recipe than blueberries because the raspberries don't have quite as much juice per berry. It's a scientific fact.

Try it and see. The only thing I might need help with is the adult beverage that might be made with this.

The lineup:

5 cups raspberries
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup pineapple juice

Put the raspberries and sugar in a saucepan an bring to a boil. Boil over medium heat for 8-10 minutes. Make sure all of the raspberries have burst and the sugar has turned into a syrup. Strain through a fine mesh strainer into a glass bowl. Add the pineapple juice. Pour into popsicle molds and freeze!
