Encyclopedia of Food and Cookery

A liqueur made from a small, sour, black cherry known as marasca, grown in Dalmatia. The cherry kernels are distilled together with the leaves, giving a bitter tang to an otherwise sweet drink.

Maraschino is used to flavour sweets, punches, cocktails, etc. Maraschino cherries are sweet cherries bleached then preserved in maraschino syrup. They are used as decoration on some pastries, drinks, confectionery, biscuits, cookies, cakes and in sauces.

Maraschino cherries are available red in syrup, with or without stems. Or they may be glacéd (candied) in red, green or yellow variations, generally used for Christmas and holiday cooking.
