<br> Store unwashed cherries in a sealed container in the coldest part of the refrigerator. Remove any cherries that are bruised or showing decay, as they will affect other cherries. Cherries should keep for up to a week if stored properly. Wash when ready to enjoy!
<br> Freezing <br> You can freeze cherries with or without the pits. Remove the stems. Wash and pat dry. Freeze on a cookie sheet (make sure they do not touch each other.) After frozen, place in a freezer bag. May be stored frozen up to 10 months. Enjoy frozen or partially thawed. Defrosted cherries can be refrigerated for 3-4 days. Refreezing is not recommended. Before cooking or baking, do not defrost cherries. Keeping them frozen will allow you to retain all the sweet juice.
