"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
I drain fruit as much as possible and save liquid for fruit tea. Place fruit in plastic drain in tupperware with cherries on bottom to further drain overnight.

For best results, I cut up figs and apricots and crumble macaroons with my hands. The Archway brand is very soft. (They are with the packaged cookies on the shelf.)
