This quick and easy rose popsicle is a delicious treat in any sunny afternoon. I have used Damask Rose petals in this rose popsicle recipe. One can replace Damask rose petals with any other rose petals. I have also replaced rose completely with other flowers like Hibiscus and Violet to make popsicles. It works out fine.
How to make Rose Popsicle-
It is quite easy, I made sugar syrup and infused it with the rose petals. It’s that easy. As the syrup gets too sweet, I added fresh lime juice to add that punch in the overall taste and flavour. Again if you feel that sugar is not your thing, then the same syrup can be made using Honey or Maple Syrup or Jaggery or whatever sweetening agent you like. But yes, with the changing sweetening agent, the texture and mouthfeel of the frozen popsicle will change sightly. But overall, the popsicle will be good.
Please take care that-
- The rose has got very delicate fragrance, so don’t heat the syrup too much. This will let the rose flavour go off.
- Adding too much of sugar won’t let the popsicle freeze properly. So just sweet is ok…too sweet is not.
Serving Rose Popsicle
There is no fixed time of serving this rose popsicle. This is so because I have served in the afternoon during high tea. I have also served this as dessert course in our tasting menu and as quick refreshment during high tea. Me and my team have also enjoyed this Rose popsicle, sitting on our kitchen floor post closing the operations.
The best thing with this recipe is that it is easy and simple. The flavoured liquid can be made in bigger quantity. All the moulds can be filled in one go and stacked in the deep freezer. That is how we do it and as and when required we take the popsicle out of the mould and serve.
