Making Lime & Jackfruit Popsicles
So I was woken up this morning at the ungodly hour of 6:30 AM (yes, I consider 6:30 AM ungodly on a summer vacation) by someone storming into my room asking for a hair clip. A. Hair. Clip. On normal days I wouldn’t have minded as much but since I went to bed at 3AM, had to wake up again at 4AM for suhoor and only got back in bed again by 5AM, it positively set me in a vile mood. But I was determined not to go about the day being irritated and made these before my morning run in hopes that it’ll somewhat restore some semblance of Zen in me. There is no cooking involved whatsoever (not that I wanted to) and I cut the lime into segments rather than just juicing them. I suppose (one of) the aftereffects of biting into these will be akin to making a lemon-face after a tequila shot, only that it doesn’t leave you inebriated. Of course, you can tweak the recipe just so that it does, should you wish to be. Feel free to swap the jackfruit for other fruits (young coconut flesh is highly recommended!) if it isn’t within your reach.
Lime & Jackfruit Popsicles:
[4 pieces of jackfruit + 1 1/2 cup water + 1/4 cup symple syrup or honey + 6 limes (7 in the picture, I know)]
Cut the jackfruit into small cubes.
Zest all 6 limes to get about 1 tablespoon of lime zest.
Take 4 limes, peel them and cut into segments.
In a small jug, combine the water and lime zest. Leave to stand for 10 minutes.
Add in the simple syrup (or honey) and the lime and jackfruit pieces
Fill the molds until 1/2 filled with the fruit pieces. .
Then pour the liquid mixture into the Popsicle molds until almost filled to the brim. Cover the mold with cling film and stick in the Popsicle sticks (All I can think about is “tongue depressor, tongue depressor” when I look at these sticks. Sigh).
Freeze for about 3-4 hours or overnight until firm. To un-mold, dip the mold into a bowl of warm water for 10 seconds to loosen the edges and pull the popsicles out. Serve.
