What are glace cherries?
I have a recipe for eggless old english cherry cake calling for glace cherries, do i use red cherries ? Any recipe for cakes or cookies with red cherries, eggless? Thanks
A maraschino cherry is a preserved, sweetened cherry, typically made from light-colored sweet cherries such as the Royal Ann, Rainier, or Gold varieties. The cherries are first preserved in a brine solution (usually sulfur dioxide) or alcohol, then soaked in a suspension of food coloring, sugar syrup, artificial and natural flavors, and other components.
Further steps along this process make GLACE and crystallized cherries; after soaking, the cherries are drained and then soaked in glucose and air-dried, producing glace cherries; a further stage involves another soaking in glucose which coats them with sugar, creating crystallized cherries.
They sell them on Amazon. :)
you buy them in a plastic container.they are cherries which have been preserved in sugar and goodness knows what else!. they are generally used in cakes,on icecream sundaes etc. you should find them no problem in baking sections of supermarkets.they are bright red and very artificial looking!
