Plum & Cider Popsicles

I don’t know about you but this heat is getting to me.  Perhaps these plum & Tempted? cider popsicles will do the trick.  Why make popsicles from anything else?

Another tasty treat from Chef and Food Stylist Jette Virdi.


2 fresh plums

1tsp vanilla paste/essence

1 bottle of Tempted? cider of your choice
We used the Dry Cider but any of them will do.  In fact, I recommend making a variety.



Cut plums into quarters removing stone and pop into a saucepan with a little water and the teaspoon of vanilla.



Cook on a very low heat until plums turn to mush and it turns quite thick rather than watery. Leave to cool.


Once cooled, split between the 4 popsicle makers and put into the freezer for 5 minutes. Take out and top up with cider then freeze overnight.


The result: Refreshingly sweet and tangy ice pops for those lazy Irish summer days.  Enjoy!
