Rosy Peach Pops

These might look like the fruit pops you already make, but adding rosewater and cardamom really takes this snack to the next level--perfumed and unforgettable. Also, a nice save when you arrive home from the farmer's market to find that you've accidentally banged up your peaches. This is also a nice opportunity to praise agave nectar, our household sweetener of choice! It has a low glycemic index (for the sugar-sensitive among you) and is sweet enough that you only need a little. It doesn't have a strong flavor, so it's a much better sugar substitute than maple syrup or honey.

4 peaches, roughly chopped
1/2 teaspoon rosewater
1/4 teaspoon cardamom
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup agave nectar (to taste, depending on how sweet your peaches are).

Blend all ingredients and pour into popsicle molds.

Freeze until you can't wait any longer. Eat.
