Florian French Candied Red Cherries for Baking
from The Confiserie Florian du Vieux Nice, France

The process of candying fruit is time consuming and nerve-racking; what with making sure the sugar concentration, times, and temperatures are all correct -- not to mention the quality of the fruit.

Candying cherries for baking is even more complicated since that beautiful red color is very fragile, and can be quickly damaged by heat.

Florian candied red cherries for baking are made from premium quality fruit and no coating is used after the candying process so that optimum moist texture and natural fruit crunch are achieved.

These gorgeous candied red cherries are packaged immediately to retain their full flavor. They are of the Bigarreaux variety, and these baking cherries are perfect for a whole host of applications.

Use these candied cherries whole, or cut them in half for cookies and cakes. Can you imagine a fruitcake without some bright red candied cherries?

ingredients: cherries, saccharose, citric acid, potassium sorbate, cochineal extract, sulfur dioxide

perfect for stollen
while I have been tempted to candy my own citrus peel, cherries are more than I can handle. So glad for this source! Just be sure to order in plenty of time for holiday baking!

You Deserve the Best
My holiday fruitcake is an enormous source of pride. They are lauded far and wide, and great wars have been fought over them. How is this possible? Premium ingredients, is why. For example, the deeper color and subtlety of flavor of these cherries helps elevate my fruitcake high above the crowd. It will do the same for you.

Can't wait to use these for my holiday baking and in cannolis! They are beautiful and not full of the junk like those in the supermarkets.

Best Candied Cherries
As others have said these both look very enticing and also taste fantastic. They are not at all “waxy” or hard. They are perfect for my chocolate ice box cake. Prince Williams grooms cake was this chocolate grooms cake. I add a splash of rum to mine. As others have reviewed, these cherries will take your baking to the next level.
