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!
