Pineapple Grape Ice
This is another great cool summer treat. It is one my grandmother made many times and it is good for kids and adults alike.
I remember sitting on the floor as a young pup, on weekday mornings watching the CBS lineup of comedies. Remember that? Beverly Hillbilles, That Girl, The Lucy Show, Mayberry R.F.D., the Mary Tyler Moore Show....
Pineapple Grape Ice
1 cup sugar
2 cups water
2 cups Welch's 100% grape juice
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 -15.25 oz can crushed pineapple with juice
Pour into an aluminum pan or freezer pan. Distribute the pineapple evenly. Cover and freeze overnight.
Scrape shavings into bowls and enjoy a treat from my younger days.
Note: Grandmother used regular grape juice but she would frown when it stained my clothes (and the rug). She later started using white grape juice instead.
Oh boy this sounds great, as I love grape popsicles this is easier and I love your grandmother tip on the white kind yum !ReplyDelete
Wow, Drick, this really sounds wonderful and refreshing! I've never heard of it before so you know I'll have to try it really soon. And, yes, I remember every single one of those shows just like it was yesterday!ReplyDelete
This sounds so refreshing, and what color...beautiful:)ReplyDelete
You are giving up my age if I say I remember that group of shows! Your grape ice is perfect for all these sweltering days!ReplyDelete

Hi Drick, I remember those shows but I never got any grape and pineapple frozen treats, I do remember eating artichokes on a TV tray in front of the TV, remember those? I'll have to try this, it sounds very refreshing this time of year, thanks, PattyReplyDelete
