Lemon Balm Popsicles

July 25, 2008

I saw this idea on an herbal email list I’m on. Take a bunch of fresh lemon balm and put it into a 1/2 gallon jar.

Add boiling water.
Then cover and let sit for 20 minutes. Strain; sweeten to taste with honey and then pour into popsicle molds.

Good luck finding popsicle molds in stores at this time of year. I couldn’t find any, so I’m using our little four pack mold and refilling it every time the girls have one, with the lemon balm solution that I have refrigerated. They got approval from the girls. They said it wasn’t the best popsicle I’ve ever made, but it was still really good and they wanted more.

    That looks divine! I wonder if I could find lemon balm at a garden store here, I don’t have a yard so there is no planting for me. sigh

    I bet you could find some at a gardening store. It’s also very easy to grown in a container. Not quite as prolific as mint, but very easy to grow even so.

    I’ll have to check it out, I must admit I have killed every indoor plant I’ve had since my mother passed away. It’s really quite funny because I used to torment her about her black thumb, I even bought her a a flower she was guaranteed to not kill (it died). Now my oldest keeps our one plant alive, because I’ve killed the rest now she torments me as I did my mother. It’s a new family tradition. LOL

    Lemon balm is supposed to be very calming too. Nice benefit for a mom!
