Drained Amarena (Italian cherry). Great for mixing into gelato and ice cream, decoration for rich desserts like cheesecake, as a topping for a variety of items such as pancakes and waffles, or beverages like champagne and seltzer. These luscious and intensely flavorful Amarena cherries from the province of Emilia-Romagna are one of the most sought after all over Europe. The Fabbri family has been producing these luxurious wild cherries in syrup since 1905 from the guarded original recipe of founder Gennaro Fabbri. The local wild cherries which are a dark red variety with a sweet and slightly bitter flavor are preserved in a rich syrup made from the juice of the same fruit. Try using these special Amarena cherries in place of any dish that requires ordinary candied cherries. You will find no end to using them.
