Ideas for Using Wilted Cherries

I know from reading this forum that there are a lot of resourceful people. I have 3 pounds of sweet red cherries that I purchased that were left in the fridge. They are not spoiled, but I would not want to eat them.


Can anybody please give me some simple ideas of using them? (simple being very important).

You don't want to eat them as is, but have you thought of using the cherries for making preserves? They will be cooked up, but you need to take the pits out of them first.

How about using them for pie filling? You can freeze them in pie portions.

I wash the fruit,cut and remove the seed.I had equal parts of sugar and fruit and 2 tablespoon of lemon juice.Let the sugar dissolve and heat through,cool and freeze.You can use for tarts,cup cakes and add to plain yogurt,as a dessert,

I don't have an idea for the use of the cherries. But I do have an easy way to pit them. If you have a vegetable peeler that has the rounded, slightly curved end you can flick the seeds out as fast as you can pick the cherries up. Just puncture the cherry through the stem end and pull the seed out. I have tried several methods and this has proved to be the fastest and easiest. Hope this helps.

You could pit them, coarsely chop them in a food processor and add to things like oatmeal, banana bread, etc. Or you could cook them with a little sugar and lemon juice for ice cream topping. If you don't know what you want to do with them, pack into a freezer bag, label it and save for when you know how you want to use them this winter.
