Cherries of the Gilgit Baltistan region are the best and juiciest ones. The season lasts from June till mid of July, a very small span but it’s worth teasing taste buds with these farm-fresh and juicy cherries. Due to its short production period and availability for only forty-five days a year, it will be good to store some in your refrigerator for later using them for Cherry Milkshakes or even homemade ice creams.
A farm-fresh cherry will be red or darker red in color depending on its type. It will not have brownish stains; its skin should be fresh and shiny. Vibrant color is one main indicator of cherry’s freshness. It’s better not to wash cherries until you are ready to consume them.
Storing in a cold place is the key to ensure cherries' freshness. They are very perishable and if not kept refrigerated will lose their quality very quickly. Cherries can be easily refrigerated for later consumption in zip-lock packs or air-tight containers. Also, before packing, remove air from the bags or container.
Wash Hands Before Handling Cherries.
First, keep them in a cold place like your refrigerator, and wash cherries in cold water only when you want to consume them. Cherries refrigeration is recommended at 2 to 5 degrees centigrade. Secondly, make sure hot water is not used for washing as it will ruin its taste and freshness as it’s a very delegate fruit and needs special care in handling them. A little hand holding is enough to puncture them.
