Peach ice lollies

Peach ice lollies

This is a great way to use up overripe or slightly bruised fruit. The lollies are wonderful if you have a sore mouth due to illness or a treatment such as chemotherapy. Just make sure they have warmed up ever so slightly from the freezer, as a super-frozen lolly may hurt if your mouth is sensitive.


Serves 8
Preparation Time: 10 minutes, plus 4 hours' freezing time

Ingredients

4 large peaches

Juice of half a lemon

1 to 2 tablespoons sugar, to taste


Method

Blanch the peaches in hot water for 2 minutes.

Remove the peaches from the pan and peel.

Halve the peeled peaches, remove the stones and slice thinly.

Put the slices into a saucepan with 2 tablespoons of water; simmer for 5 minutes, or until the peach is soft.

Reserve 16 slices and put the remaining peach slices into a blender with the lemon juice. Blend until smooth, then stir in the sugar to taste (how much you use will depend on the sweetness of your peaches.

Pour the mixture into lolly moulds, pop a couple of peach slices into each mould, and freeze.
