Its cherry time!
And, I needed a pitter. I borrowed one from Anne a few weeks ago to make a cherry pie for July 4th, and the little pitter part kept coming loose, so I ended up with very purple fingers. She mentioned to me that folks rarely make a cherry pie from fresh cherries more than once, because pitting them is so onerous.
I was determined to see if I could find a solution.
A brief visit to Sur La Table took care of my problem – I picked up the Oxo Cherry Pitter and the minute I held it in my hands, I was amazed. The weight is just right, the handle is comfortable and the the pitter part stayed put. What a great kitchen tool!
