Life is just a bowl of cherries

...so here are a few ways to get rid of the pits!

I do love my little collection of things that make life easier. With several pounds of cherries in the house this week, the cherry pitter got quite a workout!

The little hand held stoner is great for small amounts of cherries. You may find helpful to hold it low over a towel to prevent spatters, as the pit 'shoots' out. Most kitchen stores should have it hanging with the gadgets. If you have many cups of cherries, you may find the larger model is well worth the investment. Last year, it was found in the regular supermarket for under 15 dollars. Click here to see if it is available near you. This is also a likely item to find at garage sales and thrift stores:)
*both of these stoners may occasionally miss a pit.

...omg, I just looked at them myself and really wish I had more cherries!

edited to add...made the cherry cacao cobbler and it was wonderful! Here is my post on it:)

Happy Father's Day to all the wonderful Dads this Sunday!!!
