I have several quarts of sour cherries. They were fairly ripe when picked - i'm running out of time before I do 'something' with them. I was thinking of washing them, pitting and then freezing them. Will there be any negative implications to the texture of the cherries? I was thinking of eventually making some sort of jam or jelly with them, but simply don't have the time right now.
Also some of the cherries were a bit bruised (poor things got hit by hail) - I don't think there would be any impact if I kept these for the jam ~ is this okay?
