peach jalapeno pops

Call me what you will, but the first thing I do when I get a new cookbook is read the entire thing cover to cover and try to find the most interesting recipe.

When I got my People’s Pops cookbook, I quickly decided that peach jalapeno had to be made. It turned out exactly how I had hoped; sweet with a kick at the end. I actually o.d.’d on the kickĀ becauseĀ I love it so.

The recipe is pretty standard as far as pops are concerned and I made a few modifications.

Peach Jalapeno Ice Pops (makes 6)
2 large (ripe obviously) peaches
1 jalapeno
1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup water

Puree the peaches, skin and all, in a food processor. Meanwhile, slice 1/4 jalapeno into thin slices and place in a small saucepan along with the sugar and water over medium-high heat. Allow the syrup to simmer about 2 minutes longer than it took for the sugar to dissolve. Remove from heat (please turn off the stove) and let cool. Once cool, add syrup to peaches. I did mine two teaspoons at a time and found the ratio to be 2 ounces of peaches to 4 teaspoons syrup. Put in molds and freeze. Enjoy!

    I seriously need to get my hands on some pop molds. I know, I say this all the time. I know, I’m a procrastinator.

    I do the exact same thing with a new cookbook. I read the whole thing like it was a regular book and I flag the most interesting recipes.

    I love this recipe idea. Something fruity and cool with something spicy sounds wonderful. They are pretty pops to boot!
