If you’re making a sauce, cherries jubilee, or cherry pie, you’ll need to pit these juicy seasonal treats. Cherries are one of those summer fruits that are worth waiting for all year long—there’s nothing like eating them fresh when they’re in season. The eating part is easy because you can spit out the pits, but baking or cooking with cherries is another thing entirely because you have to go the extra mile to remove all those pits beforehand.
Many people rely on tools designed specifically for pitting cherries. But these gadgets can range in price from cheap (often also cheap in construction) to pretty expensive. Plus do you really need a pitter taking up precious space in your kitchen drawer when you use it just once a year? No, here is one of the easiest ways pit cherries.
All you need is chopsticks, empty bottle, and the cherries of course. Take a cherry and pluck off the stem. Place the cherry over the bottle and stick one chopstick in the middle and watch the pit fall into the bottle.
The one second it takes to pit the cherries allows you to complete an entire bowl in less than a minute. This method is so quick and clean, you’ll be eating pitted cherries all day long!
