Goat Cheese, Blackberry and Honey Popsicles

Usually, when I cook, I try to think about the things that Mark and I both like — he hates olives, for example, so it’s pretty rare that we snack on a muffaletta.

But this weekend, when nothing sounded better than a goat cheese and honey popsicle (two evil elements that I love — and that come together just perfectly in these pops) I decided that the best part about making something only I’ll dare to eat might just be that I get to keep it all to myself.

Maybe I should do this more often…

Goat Cheese, Blackberry And Honey Popsicles
via NPR’s Kitchen Window

2 cups milk
1 1/4 cups heavy cream
1 cup sugar
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon cornstarch
4 ounces goat cheese
2 pinches salt
2 cups blackberries
1/3 cup honey
1 tablespoon lemon zest, from about 2 large lemons

Combine milk and cream in a pot. Reserve about 1/4 cup of the mixture and whisk in cornstarch to make a slurry. Add sugar to milk and bring to a rolling boil for 4 minutes. Add cornstarch slurry to milk mixture and stir well for about a minute until mixture is slightly thickened.

Combine goat cheese and salt in a bowl. Turn off heat and add goat cheese and salt to the milk mixture. Whisk to incorporate, and cool mixture completely.

In a small pan, cook berries 5 to 10 minutes until softened, pressing gently to release the juices. Turn off heat. Add honey and lemon zest, and cool completely.

When both mixtures are cool, fill molds 3/4 of the way with goat cheese base. Spoon approximately 1 tablespoon of blackberry sauce on top, leaving a bit of space for expansion during freezing. Use a spoon, pop stick or chopstick to swirl the sauce throughout the pop. Freeze according to mold instructions.

Leftover base and sauce can be refrigerated for up to 5 days.
