Freezing Fresh Cherries - ButterYum

Fresh cherries are in season and I thought I'd show you how easy it is to freeze them for future use.  This technique works for sweet or tart cherries.

Start with clean cherries.  Remove all stems and pits.  I like to use this nifty cherry pitter - it's kind of fun.... and as you can see, a little messy too.  Totally worth it though.

Place the pitted cherries in a single layer on a sheet pan and pop them in the freezer for a few hours or overnight.  I've lined my pan with plastic wrap to keep the cherries from sticking and for easy cleanup.  Parchment paper would work too. 

If you have a side-by-side freezer, a quarter sheet pan should fit.

Here's how my cherries looked after they were frozen overnight.

Transfer the frozen cherries in a freezer-grade storage bag and place in freezer.  That's all there is to it.
