This article is about canning cherries. For cherry canning recipes, go to our Home Canning Fruit Recipes Page.
The same procedure is used for canning any cherries. Cherries should always be chosen very carefully. A cherry should not be canned if it has ANY imperfection. Cherries should also be submersed in water in small batches. Any that float may contain worms and should be thrown out. Make sure to visit our recipes page for cherry canning recipes! Note: Cherry Pitters may be found in our secure canning store.
|1. Pit the cherries using a good cherry pitter. This is indispensable for any cherry dish. We recommend pitting cherries inside a bowlto limit splattering and facilitate cleaning up.||2. Cold pack cherries as done for canning.|
|3. Add any other fruits to be packed with the cherries. In this instance we are adding orange slices.||4. Pour hot liquid from referral recipe over cherries then seal and sterilize.|
