SCF: The Harvest

The crops are really starting to pull their weight now. We've got blueberries, tomatoes and zucchini in full force. And I also have a new recipe for the cherries, courtesy of Melissa Clark and The New York Times: Maraschino Cherries.


Here's a lovely photograph (ahem, forgive the new camera) of the harvest:


And here's Tessa, enjoying her Maraschino cherries over ice cream.


Maraschino Cherries
1 cup maraschino liqueur
1 pint sour cherries, stemmed and pitted (or substitute one 24-ounce jar sour cherries in light syrup, drained).
Bring maraschino liqueur to a simmer in a small pot. Turn off heat and add cherries. Let mixture cool, then store in a jar in refrigerator for at least 2 days before using, and up a year or more.
Time: 20 minutes, plus 2 days' macerating
Yield: About 1 pint.
