Since pie, fruit & berry season is in full swing, I thought I’d share a tip. I wish I could remember where I saw this, found it…but I can not remember. So, if you are like me and don’t currently own a fancy gadget to pit a cherry, don’t be sad!
I have a free or semi free solution for you! I recently made a cherry pie and needed to pit 3 pounds of them! So, I used a bottle, like a beer bottle or fufu drink bottle, you can drink it or dump it before you use said bottle, whatever works for you!
You will also need something like a small stick or if you have any on hand like me, cause I live in Japan, chopsticks! You place the cherry over the bottle opening and push the stick or chopstick threw the cherry which will push the pit right out and into the bottle, easy clean up too!!
And there you have it my friends, a homemade cherry pitter with little to no effort!
