Growing up, you may have come across your local popsicle vendor on the street or better known in the Hispanic community as “El paletero”. The popsicles would come in a wide variety of delicious flavors. Follow these simple tips below to make a hibiscus (Jamaica) popsicle that will be sure to bring back refreshing memories.
First, head over to your local Cardenas Markets. Then the shopping begins…
To make this a quick tip, we can just buy the ready-made hibiscus water in our Cocina to speed up the process. If you prefer doing it yourself, you can go and buy dried hibiscus flowers from our produce department.
Next, you will need 1/3 cups worth of maple syrup and 1/3 cups of lime juice (optional). Once mixing into hibiscus water properly, pour mixture into popsicle molds of your choice and place in freezer until completely frozen.
Lastly, run the popsicle molds under warm water to help popsicles come out of the molds easier. Enjoy!
