Quick Tip

Ice-cube trays
Dixie cups are the best makeshift molds, but you can also experiment with tart tins, ice-cube trays, and conical water-cooler cups. If you use cups, insert wooden sticks into the semifrozen pops after 90 minutes in the freezer.

    High in vitamin C, these hard, tart berries are grown in bogs in colder regions of North America and Europe. They’re almost always eaten cooked, as in the classic Thanksgiving relish.
