How To Thaw Frozen Cherries In Cold Water

This is a good option if you want to defrost the frozen cherries in less time, but you don't want to accidentally over-nuke them in the microwave.
Prep Time 5 mins
Defrost Time 5 mins
Total Time 10 mins


  • A bowl
  • Cold water


  • Fill a bowl with the frozen cherries, but leave room for water.
  • Fill the rest of the bowl with cold water (not warm or hot.)
  • Set a timer to go off in 5 minutes.
  • After the 5 minutes is up, squeeze a cherry to feel if it’s still frozen. If so, replace the water with more cold water and set another timer to go off in 5 minutes.
