Cherry Pops

This is great for summer or anytime.

I made these without alcohol. For adults, you can add alcohol if desired.

2 - 3 c. pitted sweet cherries
1 tsp. sugar or your favorite sweetener (optional) adjust amount needed
2 - 3 c. water

Rinse, pit cherries and cut in half.

In a saucepan, bring water and sugar to a boil. Mix well to dissolve sugar.  Add cherries. 

Boil cherries for a few minutes.

Reduce heat and set simmer for 15 - 30 min, stirring occasionally.

Turn off stove, cover pan and let cool for 15 - 60 min.

Strain cherries and water through a sieve into a cup.

Pour cherry juice into 6 popsicle mold makers.

Put popsicle molds in freezer 
for a few hours until frozen or overnight.

Serves 4 - 6.
