How do you use frozen cherries?
People also ask, should I thaw frozen cherries before baking?
In most cases, you don't want to thaw your berries before using them in baking recipes. I always roll my frozen berries in a little bowl of flour and coat them well before adding them to batters to prevent this even further. So bake away with fresh fruit straight from the farmers' market or your freezer.
