LOOKING for: Frozen fruit bars

Posted by linnea56 (My Page) on

Should be simple enough, chop up the fruit in the food processor, but I'm wondering about proportions of sugar to fruit, or whether I should use corn syrup instead of white sugar. I'll be using very ripe peaches. I make popsicles from straight juice, and though they taste sweet enough when liquid it seems like they need more when frozen.

You sort of answered your own question. Read the second from the last response to the request at Chowhound. You can always experiment with a little at a time & freeze to find the best proportions.

Frozen stuff always tastes less sweet than warmer things...
I think I would whirr some sugar in a blender so as to make it really fine ( not powdered sugar as that has anti caking stuff) and then add some to taste to the processed fruit....and don't forget to add some lemon juice...just because.
I just made another batch of peach jam....I keep giving it away as fast as I make it! LOL! Gotta have some for the winter!

Also, You need to make a liquid base of clear gelatin and add that to your fruit mixture. The gelatin will help hold the fruit together while you're eating it. You don't need a lot or it would be like eating frozen jello.

mmmm peach jam...please share your secret. I love peach jam but I have always wanted to try to make the home made. I am sure it tastes 1000x better than store bought :)
