I heard something yesterday that made me a little sad. We are nearing the end of cherry season. Yikes! Those are a favorite! But cheer up! You can freeze those cherries and enjoy them anytime of the year! So, I thought it was fitting to re-post this "how-to" about freezing cherries. Stock up on those cherries now and enjoy those cherries year round!
Don't forget all the yummy recipes we made with cherries last summer: Cherry Quinoa and Cherry Cooler.
How to Freeze Cherries:
Today we take a look, through pictures, at how easy it is to freeze cherries.
There are 3 basic steps:
1. Rinse the cherries and dry them
2. Place the cherries in a sealable container
3. Date the container and place in the freezer - how easy is that!
|What you'll need: cherries, strainer, sealable container, something to place a date on the container|
|Rinse the cherries and let drain. Then let dry or spread them on a |
paper towel to dry (forgot to take a picture of this step).
|Place the cherries in a sealable, freezable container. Be sure to mark the date you froze them. |

|Place the cherries in the freezer. When you are ready to use, just set the cherries |
out at room temperature until they reach your desired temperature.
