Pedersen Slush...YUM!

When Dan-the-Man and I got married, I wanted to incorporate holiday traditions from both of our families into our life together. Of all the traditions, the one that was most important to Dan was Pedersen Slush. His mom, Halene made it for Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years. After trying it for the first time myself, I had to agree that it was delicious. So, every year we make TONS of it. In fact, for Thanksgiving this year, I made 4 gallons. No kidding!

I thought you might enjoy the recipe too:

Pedersen Slush

In a large freezer container (I use a 1.5 gallon large tupperware container)
  • Dissolve 2 C. sugar into 8 C. very hot water
Then add:
  • 1-36 oz. can pineapple juice
  • 1-12oz. can frozen orange juice concentrate, melted
  • 1-8 oz. can frozen lemonade concentrate, melted (I just use the 12 oz. can and don't use it all)
  • 2 bananas, pureed like baby food
Whisk all of this together well and then add enough hot water to fill to one gallon. If you are using a 1-gallon freezer container, then don't fill it all the way up. It expands as it freezes. Also, the pureed bananas tend to float to the top so be sure to go out and whisk it a couple of times as it freezes so the bananas are evenly distributed.
To serve: scoop frozen slush into glasses or cups using an ice cream scoop like you see Dan-the-Man doing in the photo (the Cutco one is the absolute BEST!) then pour Sprite on top to make a slush. Add Sprite to your taste. Dan likes his pretty "sprite-y", while I like mine more slushy. Enjoy!
