Pickled Peach Popsicle

Ice cold pickled peach on a stick.
  [vote for,

Nothing beats the luscious texture and savory sweetness of a pickled peach after a hot day working the fields. But the round shape and texture make it hard to eat. One either has to use a knife and fork or stab it with the fork and eat it like a popsicle. This still leaves one holding a bowl. You just can’t eat one while riding or even driving. But if you could buy them prepackaged mounted on a stick and wrapped nicely, you could take a couple out of the freezer in the morning and pack it in your food bucket. It would help keep your food cool while slowly defrosting and should be ready for a nice cooling afternoon snack. You could keep one hands on the reins and eat at your leisure.

       Prepare a syrup of the vinegar and sugar and bring to boil then lower to simmer. Add 4 cinnamon sticks.   

       Peel the peaches and keep whole. Stud each with 3-4 cloves. Add to simmering syrup and cook until peaches are tender about 10 minutes.

       It's still going to drip as it melts. Disgusting as it sounds how about making a pickled peach slurpee instead?

       Couldn't jelly belly make it into one of thier flavor combinations? No mess at all, just select one peach + two clove + one vinegar + one cinnamon. If its the "coolness" you lack you could chew em all a bit and stick them in the freezer for 2 min.
