  • Ingredients:
    2 cups sugar
    2/3 cups lime juice (about 3-4 limes)
    1/8 tsp cream of tartar
    1 Tbsp lime extract
  • Instructions:
    Put the sugar, lime juice, cream of tartar, and lime extract in a sauce pan with a candy thermometer. Over medium heat, stir until the sugar is dissolved.

    Bring the heat to medium high, and continue to stir, boiling the mixture until it reaches 290°F, or until it forms a hard bead when dropped in cold water.

    Spray silicone molds or ice cube trays with a neutral, safe for you cooking oil. I used a light olive oil in a mister.  You don’t want an oil that tastes like anything. Carefully pour the mixture into your molds and add Popsicle sticks, as the mixture hardens enough to hold the sticks in position.

    Let them cool overnight before taking them out of the molds. If not properly hardened, they stick to everything like cement. Ask me how much fun it was to get them off the plate below, once I was done taking the picture... Enjoy!
