    Sweet Advice
    Make two-tone Popsicles
    •  Make the first batch using one flavour (like red cherry) and fill the popsicle moulds half way and leave to freeze overnight.
    • Continue by making the second batch (maybe purple grape.) Top off the already frozen cherry Popsicles with your grape mixture. Pop on the popsicle tops and/or sticks and finish freezing.

  • Dry rubs can add a lot of flavour to just about any meat you want to grill, broil or bake. This rub uses dark brown sugar for it’s heavier molasses content, which gives a richer flavour. It’s great on chicken or pork and, once made, can be stored in an airtight container for about 6 months. The trick to a great rub is to coat the meat at least an hour before cooking.
