Cherry Pie question re: cherry type

Joined Nov 25, 2010
This year, I've decided to really go outside of the box and make a cherry pie for Thanksgiving. I have a 9" crust and one 21oz can of pie-ready cherries. My dilemma, only realized after returning home: The pie needs 2 cans worth of cherries. Now, I also have a big jar of Maraschino cherries, but they're just in water or something, not the goop that the cans have.

My question: can I put a can's worth of the cocktail cherries into the pie, making it a 50/50 canned/Maraschino mix? Will that be disastrous? Do I need to push through the lazy to go buy another can? Is this even an issue?

Thank you very very much for your wisdom.

Maraschino should never be used. Try and Oregon Bing or Montmorency or Ryder  pitted of course
