Again inspired by Mark Bittman, Nick and I decided to try making paletas this week. We got a new blender for the task (thanks, Mom!) and scoured the produce department for ideas. Nick decided to try jicama; I went more traditional with strawberries and fresh basil from the patio garden.

Here they are in the freezer in our new rocket-shaped popsicle molds.

And here is Nick enjoying his first jicama-flavored paleta.

Next time, I'd like to try cantelope or pineapple.

How did jicama taste in that form?

Spicy sweet. Interesting texture. Pretty good, actually.
