Peach & cherry ice lollies

Peach & cherry ice lollies

Home made fruity ice lollies made with glace cherries, peaches and cherry juice.

  • Serves: 10

What you need:

  • 250g caster sugar
  • 400ml water
  • 200g ripe peeled peach slices (tinned are very good)
  • 150ml cherry juice
  • 20 French glace cherries, roughly chopped

What you do:

  1. In a small saucepan, bring the water and sugar to a boil. Boil for 2-3 minutes and then remove from heat. Pour into a bowl and leave to chill completely.
  2. In a food processor or blender, add half the sugar syrup with the peaches. Blend until very fine. Pour into 8 ice-lollie molds, add wooden sticks and place in the freezer for approximately 1 hour.
  3. Take the remaining syrup and combine with the cherry juice and chopped cherries.
  4. When the peaches fairly set (after 1 hour), pour into the molds the French glace cherry mixture and let freeze solid, for about 2-3 hours.
  5. Run the outside of the mold under hot water to unmold the lollies.

Cook's tip:

Peach is a match made in heaven for French glace cherries but try other flavours like nectarines or kiwis. If making in the winter, tinned peaches are a good idea as the flavour will be sweeter than off-season produce.

French Glace Cherries

French Glace Cherries

French Glacé Cherries retain their flavour, shape and texture throughout the baking process. As such, they offer unbeatable quality, and reliable results every time. So don’t just use them in a traditional fruit cake, why not try them in other sweet (or savoury) dishes?
