I mean…I just feel like it would be unpatriotic to not eat all the frozen desserts this weekend.

I can already hear my good pal GW (George Washington for those not intimately acquainted with America’s historical MVPs) rolling over in his grave at the thought of us not buying all the strawberries and rhubarb in the produce aisle

and then not simmering them on the stove down to a sweet sticky tangy tart mush

and then not pureeing them with just enough citrus to take off that sweet edge

and then not making enough popsicles to feed an army

and then not spending the next three days consuming them like it’s.our.job.

We just can’t have that.

So, it’s official.

Uncle Sam wants YOU (us) to make something frozen and fabulous this weekend.

Might I suggest these strawberry rhubarb lemonade popsicles?

They’re only perfect in every way. #humblebrag

Can I be totally forthcoming with you guys? I HAVE A PROBLEM.

A fruit problem.

The kind that leaves you with three refrigerator shelves full of every berry and stone fruit that is even marginally in season at the moment and very limited stomach space with which to consume it. So then you end up with three refrigerator shelves full of every MOLDY berry and stone fruit that is even marginally in season because WHO CAN EAT THAT MUCH FRUIT IN A TIMELY MANNER?! Not I.

If you’re similarly afflicted….GOOD NEWS! I have solutions.

Particularly, one solution – OXO’s new line of GreenSaver boxes! These things work some serious produce magic.

The three main reasons produce rots and spoils in your fridge are (1) ethylene gas build up causes them all to ripen at the same time, (2) improper airflow causes moisture to build up, which causes mold, and (3) uncontrolled humidity also causes moisture to build up…which also causes mold. The OXO GreenSaver combats ALL OF THESE. First of all, they are made with special carbon filters that absorb the ethylene gas to slow down ripening and, subsequently, spoilage. They also provide mechanisms that allow you to elevate the fruit basket from the bottom of the container so that air can flow adequently and have vents in the top that control the internal humidity.

BOOM. Life. Changing.

So now I can buy ALL THE FRUIT and take my sweet time making/eating/making more of ALL THE POPSICLES.

OXO, you enable me. And I love you for it.

    Rhubarb and strawberry popsicles? Great idea, Joanne! Love that color too. I really have to get going on summer treats like these; haven’t made popsicles since the kids were little.

  6. That hue–so pretty! I totally sympathize with buying too much produce and not being able to eat it all. I need to get my hands on some greensaver boxes!

  7. Erica says:

    Perfect combination! And the color is absolutely stunning. Popsicles for breakfast!?

  8. Oh yeah. We are being totally patriotic by eating frozen treats. Gotta do it. These look amazing and won’t kill my bikini body (ha!)!

  9. I might just be a teensy-tinsy bit obsessed with popsicles right now and these are definitely screaming my name! I mean, strawberry, rhubarb AND lemonade all in one pop? I’m IN. These need to happen this weekend.

  12. CakePants says:

    These look so perfect and refreshing! I love that you added rhubarb for a new take on strawberry lemonade. What popsicle molds do you use? I’ve been looking to get some and could use a suggestion.

  13. Beth says:

    Rhubarb and strawberry is always a perfect combination. And mixed with lemon in a popsicle, it sounds divine!

  17. what a lovely color of popsicle! i need to make me some 🙂 🙂 🙂

  18. I love berries and I love popsicles. So this is definitely a winner, Joanne! Love the pictures too 😉

  19. Mary Frances says:

    When you put it that way … gosh, the patriotism is a flowin! For reals though, after seeing these and practically ruining my keyboard with drool, I feel like it would be in everyone’s best interest if I make these. Ugh roasted rhubarb is THE BOMB. And so are popsicles. Perfection right here Joanne!

  20. These popsicles look like the perfect way to stay cool this summer! Love the flavor combo!

  21. Candice says:

    Hi Joanne! I started a new blog 🙂 Hopefully this one with last longer than the last one. I love the colour of these popsicles, so vibrant! Hope you’re well xx

  22. Kate says:

    So funny story. The plastic bottom of my popsicle mold broke and I was feeling like “crap, I need to buy a new mold” and then I saw you using…popsicle sticks. Not only totally obvious, but I have a bag of popsicle sticks at home.

  23. Kelly says:

    These popsicles are gorgeous! Love the strawberry, rhubarb and lemon combo! So delicious and refreshing!

  24. Great tip on the veggie storage boxes. I always feel so guilty when I tear off a plastic bag.

    Lovely popsicles too – such a perfect summery treat!

  25. These popsicles are so pretty!! I have a fruit addition too. I can’t help by buy mass quantities of whatever is in season.

  26. Your marble is making me soooo happy I’ve gotta say. It’s stunning. Also popsicles, because… popsicles. I was just talking about ethylene on my blog, too!! (Plant hormones, why must you do me like this!)

  27. Liz says:

    Oh, boy, I love this popsicle flavor combination! And I MUST add some greensavers to my inventory—like you, I cannot resist buying fresh fruit and always seem to purchase more than we can eat before it goes bad 🙁

  28. I had been wondering about those OXO containers – I’ll have to give them a shot! Also, I want allll the popsicles ASAP. It’s already too hot in Georgia.

  29. Oh, these do look very good – Joanne – but it is so cold here today and I can’t even imagine eating one:-)

  30. Hotly Spiced says:

    As soon as I read the title I knew I would like these. And they’re such a pretty colour. I have to be so vigilante at standing by my fridge checking fruit and vegetables for signs of going off – it’s a full-time job xx

  31. I love the old fashioned look of these Popsicles and the flavour combination sounds perfect 🙂

  32. I need some of those boxes! I share your tendency to buy far more fruit than anyone can really eat. These popsicles look like a great way to use some of it up too 🙂

    Enjoy your long weekend – we have one here too, albeit for different reasons!

  33. Agness says:

    They look super yummy, fruity and colorful! <3 omomomom

  34. I wish I could have these but it’s way to cold, 5 Celsius only. I know my folks in India would enjoy your strawberry rhubarb Popsicle right now, it’s so hot there. Saving this one.

  35. Asha says:

    Those popsicles, I need them. Your pictures here are absolutely deliciously wonderful. Haven’t made my frozen stuff in a while, I have an idea now. Thanks and have a beautiful weekend.

  36. hmm, tangylicious!!!
    lovin rhubarb all the way…..

  37. Jessie says:

    Strawberry and rhubarb is one of my favorite combinations! An ice cold popsicle with these flavors sounds simply heavenly right now. Of course, no one else in NY is going to be able to make these because you’ve bought all the berries and rhubarb 😉

  38. Johanna GGG says:

    oh these look yummy – would love to make them but looked at the price of berries yesterday and was mightily depressed and we need warm cosy snacks right now – but come summer these are exactly what I want

  39. Kristen says:

    I’d say a fruit problem isn’t a terrible one to have, especially if you’ll be turning it into stuff like this! Looks so good!

  40. easypeasy says:

    Never tasted rhubarb before but gotta try these!!! 🙂

  41. Oh heck ya. We wouldn’t to let our founding fathers down. We got those OXO greensavers in our retreat swag bags. Can’t wait to try it out.

  42. Ahhh …. popsicle season! Yippeee! Strawberry and rhubarb is a classic combo, of course, and I’ve currently got some rhubarb hanging out in the freezer … hmmm, wonder what I could do with it? Maybe turn it from one frozen form into another!

  43. Claudia says:

    My goodness, I want ALL THOSE POPSICLES! An excellent way to use up the extra fruit in your fridge.

  44. Yum! I’ve never made anything with rhubarb, but I this makes me want to!

  45. Betty says:

    Considering that it’s supposed to be 90 degrees tomorrow and I have a boatload of strawberries in my refrigerator, I guess there’s nothing left but to find some rhubarb. 🙂

  46. Katie says:

    just need the sun to make an appearance in the UK and then these would be ideal!! x

  47. Great tips on the greensaver – thanks! Love the flavors in this popsicle… ah tis the season!

  48. mira says:

    Strawberry rhubarb is such a great combination! Definitely making these soon!

  49. This is perfect popsicle weather – popsicle molds have been on my wish list forever and you’re making me want to impulse buy some right now! So bright and pretty 🙂 Thanks Joanne

  50. Foodiewife says:

    I seem to have a similar addiction as you do. I hoard fruit. Usually, they end up as smoothies. Today, I was seriously contemplating making strawberry-lemonade Popsicle, and thought I’d search the internet. Here they are. Beautiful! Adding rhubarb is brilliant. I love OXO products and was checking those out. It’s on my wish list (I’m also addicted to kitchen gadgets.)

  51. OK, now that I know about these beautiful popsicles, summer is allowed to start. Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous!

  52. Pam says:

    The perfect combination of sweet & tart. They look fantastic Joanne.

  53. And now I need to dig out my popsicle molds…

  54. Oh my gosh, the produce drawer in my fridge is something I avoid every week because of the surprises I find in there. I need to get one of those GreenSavers boxes!

  55. Sarah says:

    So much YUM right here. Love it!
