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!


  1. Where did you find the stainless steele canning rack? I'm so tired of the rust in my canner.

  2. Hi, Cara, I found it here: - they seem to have lots of handy gadgets!
