Back in April I blogged about how easy it is to freeze strawberries. Today I am talking about Bing Cherries.
Have you ever noticed that certain fruits taste like the season they are ripe in? For instance, strawberries definitely taste like spring. Peaches and cherries taste like summer; those really tart apples taste like fall, and pomegranates taste like winter.
When you freeze fruits you can pull them out of the freezer in the winter time and taste a different season.
Cherries are very easy to freeze. I’m talking about the sweet cherries, not the tart, pie cherries. Pie cherries need a little more work.
I found Bing Cherries on sale (but of course!) at the store and bought several bags. I cleaned out my kitchen sinks and ran cold water into both sides. Then I dumped the bags of cherries in one side.
Then I pulled off the stems, picked out the yucky cherries, and put the good ones in the other side.
What fruits make you think of summer?
