The Half Pints make a Valentine’s Day-inspired rendition of their favorite night time beverage (warm milk).
They brainstormed the project: What to make it pink? Hibiscus? No, that makes it more purple, though it does taste great and required a lot of sampling just to be sure. Perhaps it was the hibiscus that inspired Frederick: prickly pear syrup! Indeed, there is nothing quite as bright pink as a pink prickly pear — the very nutritious fruit of a cactus. You’ll get great coloration from strawberry, raspberry, or cherry, but that prickly pear is hard to beat on color and flavor.
The kids were ready to harvest some more and make a new batch of syrup as our supply dwindled with this project. As luck would have it, the harvest is in the fall. 🙂
