I must have been 10 years old when I discovered cherries. And let me tell you, I consumed my fill of them!

At this time my grandmother lived in New Jersey, and it was her neighbor who had the cherry tree. She was such a kind woman who allowed my sisters and I to climb the tree, consuming as many cherries as our stomachs could handle.

We were stained top to bottom in cherry juice. Our hands, mouth, and even clothing were soiled red from the juice, we were a sticky mess. But that didn’t matter, we had a blast. However, our stomachs stated otherwise.

Now, as an adult I am still consuming more fresh cherries than my stomach can handle. I seem to never learn. Though, what I have learned is how to preserve and prepare cherries to be enjoyed throughout the summer and winter months.

Cherry Season

Is there anything more exciting than cherry season? I think not. Aside from consuming pounds upon pounds fresh this little fruit preserves and cooks quite well.

Popsicles for Days

Much like homemade fruit leather, making popsicles during the warm summer months is about routine. Take a few minutes one day a week to create a healthier popsicle option. Begin with this peaches popsicle recipe.

There are a plethora of options for making homemade popsicles. As a matter of fact, creating recipes for children and adults is extremely easy. Feel free to make what you like, you really can’t go wrong! Here are two of my favorite homemade treats.

Additional Flavor Combinations:

The following fruit partners well with cherries. However, those who are more adventuresome with flavors fresh herbs can be used to create a sophisticated frozen treat.

  • stone fruits – apricots, nectarines, peaches
  • plums
  • citrus – lemons, limes, oranges

Herb and spices such as vanilla and lemon thyme (finely minced) are excellent when paired with cherries.

Boozy Popsicle Combinations:

I enjoy boozy drunken fruit combinations. My boozy fruit has me canning bourbon peaches and bourbon figs, but it is my bourbon peach fruit leather recipe which is the true indication of this.

  • bourbon (of course it is number one)
  • amaretto
  • brandy
  • vermouth
  • vodka
  • citrus liqueur
  • rum
