Cherry Paletas

Carrot Top Salsa

I love making whole fruit paletas.  A delicious summer treat using a puree of any whole fruit you have on hand.

After going to a cherry farm and picking 10 pounds of Bing and Rainer cherries, I had plenty on hand for these frozen treats. And they are perfect for July 4th BBQ’s.

For this recipe you’ll need 2 cups of fresh cherries, lemon juice, sugar, salt and some water.

After pitting your cherries, blend everything together.

Freeze until they become solid; over night or at least 4 hours. Dip the molds in hot water to help the paletas release from the molds.
