Bountiful Harvest

We were able to pick some more cherries on Sunday. However, as I mentioned before, I don't really care to eat these cherries, but I wanted to make sure these didn't go to waste. So I decided to freeze them. First, I rinsed, stemmed, pitted, and halved the cherries.

I used the advice my mom gave me when freezing blueberries. I froze the cherries on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper. (This way they won't be a frozen block when the recipe calls for say, only one cup.) Once these were frozen, I transferred them to a Ziploc bag.

Now we will be able to enjoy many more baked goodies in the coming months when fresh cherries are a distant memory. (Sigh...)

Freezing cherries works for me! Visit We Are That Family for other great tips.

I just did the exact same post except with strawberries! It is a great way to freeze fruit. I will be freezing a LOT of cherries this way in the coming weeks.
