Abundant year for Cherries too! Check out this cherry pitter

My friend, Bob Z has an abundance of Bing cherries on his tree this year. I went by yesterday and helped pick some. Anybody who knows Bob, call him if you want to go pick cherries-pick some for yourself.

I took home 6 lbs of cherries. I use to use a cherry pitter that you did one at a time but a few years ago I got a new NORPRO Deluxe Cherry Pitter that makes it much easier and faster to pit cherries. It took less than 10 minutes to do 3 lbs! Above is a video of it in action.

It’s nice to have gardening friends in my life. Gardeners usually have an abundance of veggies or fruits in our lives and yesterday was no exception. My friend Bob was out of town and called and mentioned that his cherry trees were loaded and ready to pick so Elodie and I headed over and got about 20 lbs worth!

We invited Jerry over for dinner and promptly made Cherry Jubilee for dessert! Thanks Bob! PS-there are still lots of cherries left to pick when you come home!
