Harvesting cherries with their stems attached allow them to retain their freshness. Amarena with Stem is a famous cherry preserve from Bologna, Italy made with a variety of wild cherries with a flavour that’s sweet and bitter with herbaceous notes. Amarena cherries are used in cocktails such as a Manhattan. The syrup and cherries are traditionally spooned over almond cakes, puddings such as panna cotta, crepes, and ice cream.
