Okay I am back with a recipe for you folks. I know I just posted farm fresh fridays but I like to do that it in it's own post. Plus I had so much to say. Sorry about that. I got all gabby on ya. So this one will be quick. *hysterical laughter all around*At the market they had rainier cherries, which I absolutely love. Like mad, crazy love. Like I will knock an old lady out of the way and fight her for the last 2 bags kind of love. Not that I did or anything. Or at least you can't prove it. *thinks hard as to whether the store has security cameras* And yes I bought two bags. We're a family of 4 so it's justified. I mean I don't let anyone else eat them or anything but I *could* use that as a defence in court I am sure.Anyhow.... I came home and ate a whole bag thought about what I'd like to make with them. I had to do a recipe, I could not just eat them all in one sitting let them go to waste. So I ate a few more thought really hard and came up with popsicles. I know right, I am a genius. Out of ALL the possibilities out there and I come back with popsicles, I mean sign me up for Iron Chef immediately or Next Food Network Star. I mean that is really thinking out of the box people. I should be a millionaire or gazillionaire by now. How do I come up with these things? The mind boggles, Mensa is contacting me as we speak here folks. So here it is. Revel in it, behold it, bow in ....okay whatever, it's popsicles for crying out loud. Enjoy!Rainier Cherry Pops:
¼ cup sugar
¼ cup water
1 tablespoon corn syrup
2 cups rainier cherries, pitted
1 cup plain yogurt
Make your simple syrup ahead so it has time to cool. Place sugar, water and corn syrup in a pot and cook over medium to low heat until sugar dissolves. Let cool.
Cut up and pit your cherries.
Pour everything in a food processor and pulse until you are happy with the consistency of it.
Pour into popsicle moulds.
Freeze for at least 4 hours.
Remove from freezer and serve with a smile.
Yup, I rock! Old ladies ain't got nothing on me.
Toodles and smoochies! xx

Oh, yum! I love Rainier cherries too and will definitely try this recipe (if I can stop eating them out of the bag, but no promises, because I have really poor self control!). Thanks Kim!
the Gardener- I have the same problem, I cannot stop eating them. Hope you test this out. So good.
