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!
