Stir Fried Salted Cherries

Print Friendly and PDF
I gave you the recipe of salting cherries and how to preserve them in my previous post, and to prove that salted cherries are edible, I here present you the recipe for "Stir Fried Salted Cherries". What else would you want for evidence? Try it for yourself. Salt your cherries wait for 10 days and then its ready for stir frying! Try it and who knows you might even get addicted to salted cherries.


  • 1 ladleful of salted cherries per person.
  • 1 middle size onion, sliced
  • 2 cloves of garlic, chopped
  • 1 green pepper, chopped
  • 1 small sweet red pepper, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • spices of your preference: black pepper, red pepper, mint, thyme etc...


  1. Take out the seeds of the salted cherries. It's easy just pinch the cherries, the seed will come out.
  2. To get rid of the excess salt, put the cherries in hot water 5 to 6 hours before you intend to cook. Change the water every 2 hours.
  3. Slice your onions, (don't chop), and put them in a pan with the olive oil. Pan fry for 2 minutes.
  4. Add the red and green peppers.
  5. Now take a handful of the cherries and gently squeeze to get rid of the excess water, and apply to all the cherries. Put the squeezed cherries into the pan, and the garlic.
  6. Stir fry the cherries for 5 minutes.
  7. Now your cherries are ready. Enjoy!


  • To take out the seeds make a dent with a knife at the stem part and squeeze. The seed will pop out.
  • It will be even tastier if you add a bit of butter.
