Test Kitchen Notes
You know you have a good recipe in your hands when it calls for fruits that come into peak season all at once. M. Kurtzman's recipe does just that by combining the late summer flavors of peaches and blackberries into a popsicle the whole family can enjoy. Plus, you can feel good about serving them. The popsicles visually reminded me of a sunset after a thunderstorm when the sky turns a vivid orange and has streaks of purple stretching across the horizon. The flavor is intense peach and the blackberries have an almost jammy consistency to them that's a nice pause as you continue to work your way through the popsicle. My family loved this recipe and are already begging me to make more. We gave it five sticky thumbs up. - Dabblings —Dabblings
