Strawberry Lemonade Popsicles

When this week's ingredient for the Taste of Home Cook's Corner Challenge was announced, I was so excited.   I've been waiting for strawberry season for what seems like forever!   The warm temperatures, coupled with the fact that I am out of eggs, knocked out almost all the baking recipes I wanted to try.     Then I ran across these Strawberry Lemonade Popsicles from Sweet & Savory on Pinterest.   I love an excuse to break out my popsicle molds!  



I know the saying is "A watched pot never boils" but I think time seems to pass much more slowly when you are waiting for something to freeze    :)     These would also be great with blueberries and orange juice.      Thank you so much to Shinee at Sweet & Savory for this simple and delicious recipe!

         Strawberry Lemonade Popsicles



  Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
--------  ------------  --------------------------------
     1/3           cup  sugar (I used a heaping 1/3 c)
1/3 cup water
                        About 6 strawberries
  1                cup  fresh lemon juice (from about 4-6 lemons)
     1/2           cup  water

For the simple syrup, bring 1/3 cup of water to a boil in a small saucepan.   Stir in sugar until it is completely dissolved.     Let cool completely off the heat.

Dice up the strawberries.   Set up popsicle molds and add strawberry pieces to each.    Stir together simple syrup, lemon juice and 1/2 cup water.    Pour into the molds.   Place sticks or tops into molds and freeze completely.     To remove the popsicles from the molds, run briefly under warm water.
