Cookbook Giveaway: People’s Pops

In 2008 three friends living in Brooklyn –Nathalie Jordi, David Carrell and Joel Horowitz — had the idea of selling grown-up ice pops at a one-day event. Their artisanal frozen treats made with local, farm-fresh ingredients were such a hit that they decided to take it to the next level. They became regulars at the Brooklyn Flea and have since opened shops in the East Village, the High Line, Park Slope and Chelsea Market (luckily for me, also the location of the Cooking Channel and Food Network offices). And now, for the rest of the country, the founders of People’s Pops are sharing their best pop recipes in a cute new cookbook, People’s Pops: 55 Recipes for Ice Pops, Shave Ice, and Boozy Pops from Brooklyn’s Coolest Pop Shop.

The pop recipes are sorted by season (with summer divided into three sections) so you can match up your farmers’ market finds with the perfect People’s Pop. Spring brings rhubarb and strawberry; early summer you get cherry and blueberry; midsummer means apricots, peaches and nectarines; late summer is all about melons; and autumn is full of pears, apples, pumpkins and cranberries. All are mixed with herb and spice combos that make the fresh fruit and veggie flavors sing.

Cool off with a few People’s Pops (two of them adults-only boozy pops) today:
