Fruit and wine—in a popsicle? Yep—it’s a ménage a trios for the hedonistic foodie.
Hitting the blender’s vortex this week is some dry port wine, figs, clementine tangerines and honey. We’ve have to admit, it seemed almost sacrilege to be pouring wine onto the blades of our poptail regulator. But a nano second later “almost” turned into a 2-cup pour.
We’re on a campaign to leave no alcohol behind, so stay tuned to find out what’s next on the poptail hit list. And remember, you can find all of our boozy ice pop concoctions in Endless Poptails.
Fig and Clementine Port Wine Poptail
Makes eight 2-and-1/4-oz. popsicles
2 cups of port wine (or any dry fruity variety will work)
2 lbs clementine tangerines
1 1/2 lb figs
¼ cup honey
1. Place wine, clementine tangerines, figs and honey in a food processor or blender and process or blend until pureed, about 1-2 minutes. Pour mixture through a medium strainer.
2. Pour strained mixture into popsicle forms and freeze for about 2 hours or until mixture starts to solidify enough to hold a popsicle stick upright. Insert popsicle sticks and finish freezing popsicles overnight. To release popsicles run hot water on the outside of popsicle molds for a 2-3 seconds.
