How To Pit Cherries Without a Cherry Pitter:
If you have a cherry pitter, awesome. If you don't, allow me to show you something I learned from the all powerful Martha a few years ago. Use a pastry tip. Brilliant!
I just used a small round tip. All you have to do is insert the tip into either end of the cherry--the stem end works best, press firmly, and voila! The pit comes out the other end.
I won't lie--it probably took me a good 45 minutes to pit all those cherries you see in that measuring cup.
My favorite cherry recipes:
White Cherry, Honey, Yogurt Sorbet
Fresh Cherry Pie
Black Forrest Cake (can use jarred or fresh cherries)
