Here's one more fun/easy gift idea.
Take some frozen, whole, organic cherries. (Columbia River is rated the best in texture and taste.) Get a big jar. Get a bottle of Maraschino liquor. Dump cherries in jar. Fill with Maraschino and add some sugar. (if you ever want it to be a dessert topping rather than a cocktail garnish.) (It's fucking to die for over fancy vanilla ice cream.)
Let sit in a cool, dark place for a week. Cha-bam. Delicious (REAL, OLD SCHOOL) Maraschino cherries.
Sorry the pic ain't better.
