R is for … Rainier Cherry Puree Pops

R is for … Rainer Cherry Ice Pops – Candy Coated Culinista

Ranier cherries are the best period. I love them even though they are so expensive and I really should just stay away. I was grocery shopping and saw these peculiar looking cherries and to me they just looked a little anaemic; but low and behold these were Ranier cherries and I decided to purchase a 2lbs container up and give them a try. These were so sweet and succulent that I could eat a whole container myself in one sitting. I still find these are still too pricy, but they are only around for maybe a month in the summer, so I will splurge to taste these wonderful fruit gems.

Yield/Serving: approx. 10 popsicles (depending on your mold size)
Prep Time: 5 min.
Cook Time: 8 min.
Difficulty level is: Easy

Ingredients
• 2 cups ranier cherries, pitted
• ¼ cup sugar
• 2 cups water

Assembly
1. Combine cherries, water and sugar in a small saucepan.
2. Over medium-high heat let simmer for 8 minutes, until the sugar has dissolved.
3. Let the mixture cool.
4. Pour mixture into a blender and pulse slightly.
5. Fill the ice pop molds and freeze overnight.
6. Unmold and serve.

Tips
• Run over luke warm water to unmold.

Please Enjoy

My thoughts
Yum immediately came to mind and this is a great way to have rainier cherries. I added strawberries to a few popsicles to give a variety to the puree pops and they still tasted wonderful.
