Candied Cherries too Mushy - How to fix?

OracleofMN | Jul 23, 201912:44 PM     4

I made some candied cherries, using this recipe. https://www.wenthere8this.com/candied...

The problem is they turn very mushy after the simmering process. I was hoping they would turn out more like Luxardo Maraschino Cherries which have a little crunch and keep their round cherry shape. I did brine the cherries overnight in a salt water solution thinking this would help but it didn't seem to do much. Any thoughts on how to improve the quality of my cherries? Brine them longer? Is there a way to candy them without simmering for so long as this is when they lose their shape and turn mushy. Thanks!
