“My grandmother, Maude Marshall, was an amazing cook. This recipe is a family favorite, and the beauty of it is that it doesn't matter what time of year it is--you can always get maraschino cherries and canned pineapple! The color is a lovely pink, and the taste always takes me back to my childhood.”
