This sour wild cherry or amarene is dark red in color and tastes slightly sour, almost unpleasant when eaten raw. Theses pitted Amarene (sour cherries) are simmered in their own juice, sugar and spices until syrupy. Rich flavors of baked sour cherries with a hit of cinnamon, clove and lemon marry the perfect blend of sweet and tart. These cherries are naturally grown and free of any preservatives, artificial colors or flavors.
The amarene work well swirled in yogurt, spooned on top of ice cream and panna cotta. Use as a topping of a flourless chocolate cake and save the syrup to mix in a cocktail!
