dick’s, home depot, and maraschino cherries

Well, last night we went to Dick’s and Home Depot and now Paco and Migi have made up a new song that goes “Tsetseburetse, tsetseburetse, tsetseburetse, equals… hindi sensible!”

And today I was reading What Einstein Told His Cook and I learned how they make maraschino cherries… They bleach the cherries white with sulfur dioxide gas, and then they’re dyed either green or red, then flavored with oil from bitter almonds and then packed in syrup. Yuck. If I’d known that that’s what it takes, I wouldn’t eat them. But they do look so nice against the white cream on a black forest cake…
