Recipe Notes

 Makes about 13 oz. of cherry puree.

I was impatient when I made this, so I didn't quite thaw the cherries. However, since I was planning to put them back into the freezer after pureeing, it was probably better that way. Once something has been thawed, it really shouldn't go back into the freezer.
