FAQs about Rainier cherries
One of the most notable differences between dark sweet cherries and Rainier cherries is their appearance. Dark sweet cherries have a deep mahogany color. Rainier cherries are primarily yellow with a little bit of red. They also taste different, with Rainier cherries being sweeter than dark sweet ones. That is due to the higher Brix content and lower acidity levels. The growing seasons also differ. Rainier cherries only have that short, sweet spot in June and July, while dark sweet cherries are still available until the end of August.
You can purchase dried Rainier cherries, but you can also make them at home in several ways, including with a dehydrator. Rainier cherries are great dried with their natural sweetness and can be eaten just like that or used in recipes.
If you plan to dry Rainier cherries in the oven, pit them and place them cut side up on baking sheets. Ensure that no sides of the cherries touch, as you want the heat to reach around all sides.
You can also freeze Rainier cherries. While you don't have to pit them before freezing, many people recommend that you do. Pitting them after they've been frozen can be messy. Some bakers prefer the taste of frozen cherries for recipes, so you can always experiment with using them fresh or thawed.
