Well this year we have lots of sweet cherrys and I am wondering about drying them . Any one tried this ? Did you take the stones out ? Was it worth it ?

I've never dried them myself but I used to buy dried ones when I was in the UK, and yes, the stones were taken out.

Now I grow my own, I tend to freeze the surplus, with stones taken out and spread on a large tray until frozen, then packed loose in bags.

Sweet cherries are one of my favorite things to dehydrate.  You will need to pit the cherries and using a cherry pitter will make removing the pits faster.
