Candied Cherries

Candied Cherries
Candied cherries, like Italian Amarena or French Griottines, in small quantities and in an easy and quick preparation, as will be used in the manufacture of ice cream and which will soon show you.
It is not the known version of candied fruit, such as Orange Peels and others, which we use in cakes etc. It is semi-candied cherries. I chose the cherries to be cut in two and not remain intact in order to be incorporated into the cream and in which our tooth only will meet.
It is not jam nor sweets, we make for the winter. It is something between these two. Their syrup is more dense and flavored with whole lobe vanilla and lime peel.
