Those sweet luscious cherries are finally here!
You could probably eat handfuls of them, right?
And how about a delicious cherry smoothie or cherry pie (raw of course!) – YUM!
The little messy pits
But then there is just the tiny issue and hassle with those pits. Cherries are not especially hard to pit, but time-consuming AND messy with stains all over the place, at least in my kitchen!
Here comes a handy little helper
– the cherry pitter!
Have you seen one before?
It pits up to 4 cherries in one motion.
It catches pits and juice in a base
– left are just the pitted berries on a tray.
The tray is removed from the base for easy cleaning.
Some cherries might remain un-pitted or partially un-pitted. Please always double check the cherries, especially before giving to a young child.
Where to get it?
Many kitchen specialty supply stores carry this pitter along with other styles. It can also be ordered through various online retailers. The price range: $9.00 – $15.00.
Enjoy cherry season
And eat them by the handfuls – both Bing and Rainier cherries!
I know I will!
