Maraschino Cherries

Before Prohibition, maraschino cherries were cherries macerated in maraschino liqueur. Now maraschino cherries are far removed from their ancestor. Call me old fashioned, but they taste nothing like an actual cherry nowadays. I went back to their roots for it’s taste and simplicity. The hardest part is pitting the cherries, but if you’re like me you get excited to break out the cherry pitter. Such a brilliant contraption!

the lonely pit.

cherry bath!



About Soup and the Clouds

I treasure the small adventures in life. Such as, listening to records, making jam from farmer's market produce, seeing new sites, eating the best tomato I've ever had, reading a good book, watching a film, appreciating a good font, going for a long bike ride or walking down a street I've never walked on before. The list goes on.
