Fascinating feature story in the Sunday Oregonian:
http://www.oregonlive.com/search/index.ssf?/base/entertainment/1139277328292680.xml&coll=7

Unfortunately, the on-line version of the story doesn't have the great pictures that went along with the print version, but you can see a small version of the picture of Mt. Hood with a cherry on top in this image of the front page! (top left corner): http://www.oregonlive.com/oregonian/ftp/Sunday-A1.pdf

I'm intrigued by the "natural" maraschinos being produced for Trader Joe's mentioned toward the end of the story. I'm going to have to check those out.

Picked up a jar of the "organic" maraschinos at Trader Joe's yesterday ($1.99 - located with all the other jarred fruit). Not as sickly-sweet and bright red as the "regular" maraschinos, but all in the family agree they taste great. And always nice to buy organic and local.
