Pitting Cherries

My endeavours to cook and bake with cherries continue. I was browsing for ideas at Martha Stuart marthastuart.com and found this wonderful, lifesaving tip for today. Just-on-time not just-in-case solution for me who do not own a cherry pitter!

“In case you do not have a cherry pitter, use a paper clip. Unbend the clip in the center. Insert the tip of one end into the stem end. Twist to loosen pit and pull to remove.”

I found this in the recipe for brown-sugar cherry cakes that I am just about to bake.

How simple and wonderful! Yet something I could never think of. Did you know this trick?
