Homemade Maraschino Cherries are so easy to make and taste way better than store-bought. Mix them into drinks, garnish your ice cream, or just eat them by the handful!
*I found 100% cherry juice at Trader Joe’s.
**I used Rainier cherries; Bing or any other sweet kind should be perfect too.
***If you’re a canning pro (unlike me), you can go ahead and can these for longer shelf-life. If you just put them in a jar like I did, they should last around a couple weeks to a month.
If your cherries get discolored after a few days, don’t worry about it; that’s normal.
