Sweet summer cherries with a touch of lime make these sweet popsicles a perfect treat on a hot summer day.
I love the deep red color you get from using real cherries and the flavor is not that artificial cherry taste you get from those imitation flavored pops, it's richer with a more intense cherry taste.
If you plan on making these, I highly recommend buying a cherry pitter, there are so many to choose from on Amazon. Stay cool!
PS- You can find the popsicle molds on Amazon too! I used this mold, with regular popsicle sticks.

- 1 lb cherries
- 1/2 cup water

Stem the cherries and remove the pits. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine the cherries with the water, sugar, and lime juice, and cook until the cherries are very soft and cooked through, about 10-15 minutes. Remove from heat and let it cool to room temperature.
Puree the cherries and their liquid and put the mixture through a fine sieve.
Pour into popsicle molds and freeze.
