How to Make Glaceed Cherries


| 7/20/2016 2:31:00 PM


You can easily make your own glace cherries for fruit cakes and your Christmas stollen.

The cherries you do yourself will be a darker red instead of that false neon color and will be made with only cane sugar and very little or no GMOs.

These will actually taste like sweet cherries, with no odd chemical aftertaste. You’ll also save money.

I used beautiful dark Bing cherries for mine — you could choose to use Royal Anne, Ranier, or other varieties if you choose.



Ingredients:

  • 1 pound pitted cherries
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 2 cups water
  • optional: 1 tbsp light corn syrup

Note: Corn syrup is a GMO and you may choose not to use it. It is only 1 tablespoon and it does prevent the syrup from crystallizing. All other syrups I can think of will crystallize.
