Known in Italy as "Marasche al frutto" (literally 'cherries to the fruit'), these are the Marasca cherries used by Luxardo for distilling its renowned Maraschino liqueur, but here preserved in a jar, 50% candied cherries and 50% syrup. No thickening agents or preservatives are used.
The old-fashioned looking 360 gram jars have a shelf life of three years but once opened should be refrigerated
