I learned this one from my Mom, thanks Mom! I almost have her talked into getting on this app because off this poll series. I'll bet she knows all my tips though since she taught me how to cook!

A hint of almond extract in anything that was vanilla (& some things chocolate) was my mom's "trick" to make it special.

I knew that. Thought everyone knew that.
We have almond extract. Don't have cherry extract because it isn't needed. In fact I don't remember seeing cherry extract for sale at the store.

Good. It seems I never have the right extract on hand. I fudge a lot.

I dehydrate a lot of my food. Dehydrated cherries this summer. Ground them up into a powder and put them into divinity with the same time I put the syrup in amazing dark cherry flavored divinity. Used almond extract rather than vanilla.

Cherry marzipan seems like it would be odd

I'm actually surprised how many people didn't know this one. I almost didn't even use this it because I thought the majority would know it. However, I was busy and didn't have time to think of a better one. I'm glad that I used it now looking at the results.

Never needed cheery extract. Not a huge fan of cherries though

I did not know that, but I don't know that I've ever used cherry extract for anything.
