In the past I have always gave our cherry's to a neighbor and he would make some kick butt wine for us. This year our cherry trees are LOADED. This year instead of giving all of the cherrys away I am wanting to freeze some to use throughout the year. What is the best way I should freeze them? Should I just put them in gallon zip lock freezer bags or should I try to vaccum seal them? Or is there a better way? Also should I freeze them with the pits in or out? When pitting the cherrys should I cut the cherrys in half to get the pit out, or pinch the pit out keeping the cherry in one piece? Next question. Does anyone have a good cherry pie recipe that calls for fresh picked cherrys they would like to share with me?
