Remember all those cherries we picked last Saturday? I was dreading pitting them with my little hand pitter so Elodie went out and got a cherry pitting machine that is much faster and makes pitting cherries a breeze. It’s a Norpro Cherry Pitter that she got at Las Cosas in DeVargas Mall.
Here is a picture of it above. Very plastic but works great. Simple design. It’s got a tray to hold the cherries, a plunger to push out the pits, a cup where the pits go. I put a small cookie sheet under the area for the pitted cherries. Lava came over and we did most of them in about 2.5 hours. About 20 lbs of them.
Then I placed them on cookie sheets in a single layer and froze them so they would not stick together. In about 2 hours I was able to put them in freezer plastic baggies. Should make some great cherry recipes. Waa Laa! Finito!
That’s great! Thanks. I’m going to run right out and get one today
I just picked another 8 pounds this morning…. in addition to the 12 pounds I picked yesterday. And there are still more! Cherries galore!
