    Freezing

    Freezing is another easy way to preserve cherries for later. "They make great low calorie snacks during the winter months, children love them," said Oehler. Dark cherries are best for freezing because they do not darken.

    Wash, stem and pit them, if desired. Cherries can be frozen individually on cookie sheets and when frozen, repackaged into freezer bags to make individual frozen cherry snacks. Cherries can also be frozen in syrup or juice pack. Add ascorbic acid to syrup or juice mix to help prevent browning of light colored cherries. Seal, label and then freeze. Pie cherries also freeze well. Select bright red, tree ripened cherries. Wash, stem and pit them. Pack cherries into freezer containers and cover with sugar syrup or fruit juice. Cherries can also be sprinkled with sugar, let set for 15 minutes to make their own juice, and then pack into freezer containers. Seal, label and then freeze.
