Will keep at room temperature for a few days, or longer in the refrigerator. Remove stems and pits just before using, as once the stem is removed, the cherry will deteriorate rapidly.

Raw (sweet varieties only): salads, smoothies, and sorbets.Cooked: compotes, cobblers, pies, and sauces for poultry.
