Glacé cherries are stoned maraschino cherries that are candied in sugar syrup. They are very sweet with a hint of bitterness.
Check the sell-by date.
Store sealed in a cool, dark place.
Glacé cherries are very sticky. If baking them in a cake or bread, rinse off the sugar syrup, dry thoroughly and chop as required before adding to your batter or dough: this prevents the cherries from sinking to the bottom of the cake or bread.
Glacé cherries have an affinity with almonds, lemons, chocolate, butter and richly spiced dried fruits. Almond-flavoured maraschino cherry stones are used to make kirsch and Maraschino liqueur.
