These popsicle was acquired by me molds for 14 months before with them once, yet in the entire weeks since I used them for the very first time, I’ve made three other varieties and considered doing a 5-time week of posts here exclusively specialized in popsicle offerings. I’ve fallen down a popsicle rabbit hole therefore deep basically, every time I see something that looks good now, I think, I question how that could taste as a popsicle. (My family’s searching nervous around me, understandably.)
So, what changed? First, I recognized that they hold 1/3 glass each. One-third of a glass! Do you know how little that’s? You could literally stuff it with the most indulgent Ben & Jerry’s and still can be found in under their recommended serving size, while eating a thing that felt generous. Not really that we’re likely to do that. Yet. I also noticed that all of the headaches that most iced frozen desserts involve – egg yolk custards, buckets of leftover egg whites, freezer bowls, the churning of machines so loud and groaning that we used to (seriously) lock in the bathroom so we didn’t have to hear it, and then have got another two hours of freezer time to go – do not can be found in Popsicle Land, a magical place where all concoctions freeze perfectly and but six hours stand between you and your next indulgence-on-a-stick. Finally, since we recently decided it would be a really good notion to get a white carpet, I especially like that at least the types I’ve been producing aren’t terribly drippy. As they’re fruit purees and additional thick things mostly, they don’t therefore much melt back again to a watery condition when someone (not really naming titles) takes an hour to complete one.
I purchased this written reserve on Paletas a couple weeks ago and, look, I admit when it arrived I thought, “a whole reserve of Mexican-design popsicle recipes? I can’t envision needing that,” while my popsicle molds collected dirt. Silly Deb, silly silly Deb. This reserve takes something mainly because simple as a frozen issues on sticks and raises it to an art. I haven’t produced one recipe out of this book that didn’t knock it so far from the recreation area, we didn’t sit down there altogether silence muttering, “No this is actually the best one however,” each time only needing to update our opinion when the next one came out of the freezer.
And there are these then. Our favorite summer cocktails depends on four tiny things – strawberries just, lime juice, black pepper and white tequila – but the mixture is out of this global world. I even tried to reverse engineer it in my own book, only moderately successfully, and probably could have saved some time if I’d just, like, Googled it. (It creates a pitcher. Go, get to work.)
But I did not really make these with tequila in them, in part since the ingredients are so absolutely amazing without it, and also because “Yes, mommy made a freezer filled with vibrant crimson homemade popsicles from your favorite fruit but they’re not for you, nya-nyah” is normally some very cruel tantrum bait. Luckily, Tracy from Shutterbean has solved everything, once more, and it’s known as, or it really is known as by me, The After-Bedtime Dip. You’re welcome.
Tenerife (/tɛnəˈriːf/; Spanish: ) is the largest and most populated island of the seven Canary Islands. It is also the most populated island of Spain, with a land area of 2,034.38 square kilometres (785 sq mi) and 898,680 inhabitants, 43 percent of the total population of the Canary Islands. Tenerife is the largest and most populous island of Macaronesia.
About five million tourists visit Tenerife each year, the most of any of the Canary Islands. It is one of the most important tourist destinations in Spain and the world. Tenerife hosts one of the world’s largest carnivals and the Carnival of Santa Cruz de Tenerife is working to be designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Served by two airports, Tenerife North Airport and Tenerife South Airport, Tenerife is the economic centre of the archipelago. The 1977 collision of two Boeing 747 passenger jets at Tenerife North Airport, resulting in 583 deaths, remains the deadliest aviation accident in world history.
Santa Cruz de Tenerife is the capital of the island and the seat of the island council (cabildo insular). The city is capital of the autonomous community of Canary Islands (shared with Las Palmas), sharing governmental institutions such as Presidency and ministries. Between the 1833 territorial division of Spain and 1927, Santa Cruz de Tenerife was the sole capital of the Canary Islands. In 1927 the Crown ordered that the capital of the Canary Islands be shared, as it remains at present. Santa Cruz contains the modern Auditorio de Tenerife, the architectural symbol of the Canary Islands.
The island is home to the University of La Laguna; founded in 1792 in San Cristóbal de La Laguna, it is the oldest university in the Canaries. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the city is the second to have been founded on the island, and is the third of the archipelago. The city of La Laguna was capital of the Canary Islands before Santa Cruz replaced it in 1833.
Teide National Park, a World Heritage Site in the center of the island, has Teide, the highest elevation of Spain, the highest of the islands of the Atlantic Ocean, and the third-largest volcano in the world from its base. Also located on the island, Macizo de Anaga since 2015 has been designated as a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. It has the largest number of endemic species in Europe.
The island’s indigenous people, the Guanches, referred to the island as Achinet or Chenet in their language (variant spellings are found in the literature). According to Pliny the Younger, Berber king Juba II sent an expedition to the Canary Islands and Madeira; he named the Canary Islands for the particularly ferocious dogs (canaria) on the island. Juba II and Ancient Romans referred to the island of Tenerife as Nivaria, derived from the Latin word nix (nsg.; gsg. nivis, npl. nives), meaning snow, referring to the snow-covered peak of the Teide volcano. Later maps dating to the 14th and 15th century, by mapmakers such as Bontier and Le Verrier, refer to the island as Isla del Infierno, literally meaning “Island of Hell,” referring to the volcanic activity and eruptions of Mount Teide.
The Benahoaritas (natives of La Palma) are said to have named the island, deriving it from the words tene (“mountain”) and ife (“white”). After colonisation, the Hispanisation of the name resulted in adding the letter “r” to unite both words, producing Tenerife.
The 18th-century historians Juan Núñez de la Peña and Tomás Arias Marín de Cubas, among others, state that the island was likely named by natives for the legendary Guanche king, Tinerfe, nicknamed “the Great.” He ruled the entire island in the days before the conquest of the Canary Islands by Castilla.
The formal demonym used to refer to the people of Tenerife is Tinerfeño/a; also used colloquially is the term chicharrero/a. In modern society, the latter term is generally applied only to inhabitants of the capital, Santa Cruz. The term “chicharrero” was once a derogatory term used by the people of La Laguna when it was the capital, to refer to the poorer inhabitants and fishermen of Santa Cruz. The fishermen typically caught mackerel and other residents ate potatoes, assumed to be of low quality by the elite of La Laguna. As Santa Cruz grew in commerce and status, it replaced La Laguna as capital of Tenerife in 1833 during the reign of Fernando VII. Then the inhabitants of Santa Cruz used the former insult to identify as residents of the new capital, at La Laguna’s expense.
About one hundred years before the conquest by king Juba II, the title of mencey was given to the monarch or king of the Guanches of Tenerife, who governed a menceyato or kingdom. This role was later referred to as a “captainship” by the conquerors. Tinerfe el Grande, son of the mencey Sunta, governed the island from Adeje in the south. However, upon his death, his nine children rebelled and argued bitterly about how to divide the island.
Two independent achimenceyatos were created on the island, and the island was divided into nine menceyatos. The menceyes within them formed what would be similar to municipalities today. The menceyatos and their menceyes (ordered by the names of descendants of Tinerfe who ruled them) were the following:

The achimenceyato of Punta del Hidalgo was governed by Aguahuco, a “poor noble” who was an illegitimate son of Tinerfe and Zebenzui.
Tenerife was the last island of Canaries to be conquered and the one that took the longest time to submit to the Castilian troops. Although the traditional dates of conquest of Tenerife are established between 1494 (landing of Alonso Fernández de Lugo) and 1496 (conquest of the island), it must be taken into account that the attempts to annex the island of Tenerife to the Crown of Castile date back at least to 1464. For this reason, from the first attempt to conquer the island in 1464, until it is finally conquered in 1496, 32 years pass.
In 1464, Diego Garcia de Herrera, Lord of the Canary Islands, took symbolic possession of the island in the Barranco del Bufadero (Ravine of the Bufadero), signing a peace treaty with the Guanche chiefs (menceyes) which allowed the mencey Anaga to build a fortified tower on Guanche land, where the Guanches and the Spanish held periodic treaty talks until the Guanches demolished it around 1472.
