Homemade icy poles

It’s 33 degrees and rising here. Where’s the cloud cover and showers that were promised on the weather reports this morning?

By the way, the preserves in the stall at the gate are safely cooled in an eski out there now. There are fresh jams and chutneys, as well as a cordial syrup made from redcurrants, blackcurrants and raspberries.

I make these syrups up with 4 parts water to one part syrup, then pour into icy pole moulds. Very refreshing on days such as these. They contain no artificial additives, unlike most commercial ‘equivalents’, and are very economical to make.
