I have a jar of Luxardo maraschino cherries that I bought about a year ago. I've used a few of them. I keep them in refrigerator. Most of the cherries are now covered with a grainy white crust - the grains are the size of fine sand and are hard. There is also a layer of this stuff in the bottom of the jar. They don't smell bad, and my guess is that this is crystallized sugar. Has anyone else encountered this? Are they still safe to put in a Manhattan?
