I love this combination of sweet pears, a tart reisling, and spicy ginger! The flavors come together perfectly to create the perfect refreshing summer popsicle!

In This Recipe
Combine pears, reisling, ginger, cinnamon and seeds scraped from a vanilla bean (alternatively, if you have a bean pod from a previous use, you can throw the pod in to add the flavor) in a saucepan over medium-high heat until mixture comes to a boil.
Once mixture begins to boil, reduce heat, cover, and cook for 20 minutes.
Carefully transfer pear mixture to a blender and allow to cool for several minutes. Then add the sugar and blend until smooth.
At this point, you can pour the mixture through a strainer and then into the popsicle molds. If you like the small chunks of pear or ginger, skip the straining step and pour the pureed mixture into the popsicle molds
