These are candied cherries soaked in Luxardo marasca cherry syrup. The percentage of marasca cherries in jars and tins is about 50% and so is the percentage of syrup. No thickening agents of any type and no preservatives are used and the dark red colour is all natural. Their unique taste comes from the marasca cherry syrup. A unique system ensure they are preserved and yet still contain their crispness. A full-on intense cherry flavour. Eat on their own for a naughty treat or use, like we do, in your favourite cocktails. And that syrup can be poured over ice cream!
