Sour Cherries

sour-cherries-trans Pucker up! Sour Cherries are traditionally reserved for pie bakers and jam makers, but give their fresh tart-sweet burst of flavor a try before you cook ‘em up. Nutrient-rich sour cherries have even more health-promoting benefits than their sweet cousins, especially when consumed raw.

Preparation Tips

Sour cherries are delicious fresh on their own or as a lovely sweet-tart accent to a fruit salad, but some say they shine best in pies, cobblers, jams, chutneys, syrups, and sauces. Brandied cherries are also a favorite among more adventurous types.

Storage Tips

Store unwashed cherries in the fridge for 3–5 days loosely wrapped in plastic, or freeze pitted cherries for up to a year in an air-tight container.
