Frozen Sour Cherries in Winnipeg?
I'm looking for frozen sour cherries in Winnipeg. All that I can find are jarred sour cherries, which I've never used to make cherry pie before. The jarred ones are tired looking, so I'm trying to find frozen ones. Anyone know where I can find them?
Thanks a million!
I am a big fan of sour cherries too - they're not easy to find in Alberta either. In the few years I've been looking for local produce, I've learned to go looking for provincial ag information or local growers associations.
A look at Winnipeg turned up Pick and Pay at Lockport Berries - who advertise having "1 acre of Raspberries 1 acre of Saskatoons 1 acre of Evans Sour Cherries Frozen berries U-pick" and like any u-pick, call ahead http://www.pfga.com/other-fruits.asp (scroll down, listings are alphabetical)
Good luck and happy pie making :)
I could be wrong, but I know I've seen them relatively recently. I'll take a look around at my usual haunts again. My occasional baking teacher gets frozen sour cherries somewhere. I'm pretty sure he said superstore, but I'm not sure if it's a specific one (not all superstores or costcos are created equal).
