Of Seasonal Fruits and Scratch & Dent Vegetables

Its that time of year again. Spring in New England, everything tastes good. There's so much lovely local fruit and veg around and even Stop & Buy Stuff cant sell it fast enough to keep it off the scratch & dent shelf. I've discussed this before, I'm obsessed with the seconds in the produce department.

Strawberry popsicles:
2lbs of hulled strawberries
1/4 cup light cream
1/4 cup sugar or agave syrup
2 tbs. lime juice
Makes around 40oz (10 4oz pops)
Blend, freeze in molds or paper cups with sticks.

Mango Cream Bars
A little more work here

1lb Very ripe mangoes (currently loving 'champagne' variety)
1/4 cup sugar

1 pint light cream
1/4 cup sugar
tbsp vanilla extract (the natural kind is worth it)

Blend your mangoes and sugar. Fill the pop molds or paper cups 1/2 full of the mixture. Blend the cream, sugar and vanilla and pour on top of the mango when it is frozen.
