This bread is best if made with fresh cherries or with cherries that are
snap frozen without a syrup. If you cannot find fresh cherries or snap frozen cherries,
you can use frozen cherries packed in syrup or water. Be sure to thaw, drain, and
rinse the frozen cherries before adding to the recipe. Decrease the amount of cherries
to 1 cup.
