This is the only lolly that truly speaks to my adult palate. It's not too sweet, tastes beautifully fruity and has a lovely, coarse texture. For this recipe to work you need a super-ripe pineapple, so hold it to your nose and take a deep breath when you're at the store; you're looking for a sticky, almost exaggerated pineapple smell.
1 very ripe large pineapple, peeled (approx 500g/1lb peeled weight)
2 tbsp caster sugar
Handful mint leaves
Grated zest and juice 1 lime
Finely chop the pineapple, discarding the core. Place the fruit and any juices into a bowl and use a fork to mash it.
Grind the sugar, mint and lime zest with a pestle and mortar until the mint has broken up to a coarse powder.
Stir into the pineapple with the lime juice. Spoon into ice-lolly moulds and freeze until almost set. Push wooden sticks into the lollies and freeze completely.
