Maraschino Cherries, Day 2

This morning I drained the cherries and rinsed them. Note they are less red than they were yesterday; that's not what I expected from the brine soak. I guess I expected they would be smaller.

At 6:30 this morning I was boiling the sugar, water, lemon juice and red food coloring and added the cherries for their 24 hour soak. I had to get to work by 8, after all.

In other news, I got a new canning rack, finally! It's stainless steel, so it shouldn't rust, and it fits great in my boiling water canner. Yay!
