I was struggling to cut the pit out of the third cherry, cursing the fact that I don't have a cherry pitter when I remembered something I saw on Pinterest.
Get ready to have your mind blown!!
Yep, that is a straw you see there...
Press that straw into the top of the cherry...
Gently press it all the way through...
Crazy right?? Who would have thought a simple straw would work as a cherry pitter. I really didn't think it would work, but I was desperate and decided to try it.
It worked like a dream!! Perfectly pitted cherries, in record time!
If you are doing A LOT of cherries you may need a couple of straws, they do get a little bent on the edge after about 3 cups of cherries.
I just had to share this with you!
