        What maraschino recipe are you planning?

          I'm making them using the cheater's recipe- maraschino liquor + cherries = soak :)

          Depending on where you garden, the recent temperatures below 20F for several nights after the sour cherry trees bloomed may mean a loss of crop this year.

      2. I usually see them at the Waverly Farmer's Market (Baltimore) in time to make sour cherry sauce for ice cream around 4th of July.
