Kitchen Hint of the Day!

Buying Cherries………..

Look for bright green stems, which are signs of freshness. You want cherries that are firm, plump, and dense, with shiny skins and saturated color. (Color itself is not always an indicator of quality since different varieties have different hues.) Avoid bruised or wrinkled cherries.

To store them – Cherries like it cold. “They lose more quality in an hour at room temperature than they do all day at refrigerator temperature,” says Michael. So put them in the fridge, unwashed, and keep them dry. If you have room, Klein suggests storing them in layers between paper towels.

Buying Cherries……..

When buying Cherries remember that the darker the cherries, the sweeter they are. Also choose Cherries stems intact. Otherwise, their juices leak. Like they say, Life’s a bowl of Cherries!
