Yesterday hand pitted about 8 lbs of cherries. Its only once a year (if there are good cherries), so haven’t bothered getting a cherry pitter. When in the midst of the marathon session with knife and cherries, always consider it. They really aren’t too expensive. Then decide for use once a year, can live without another gadget. Until once again in the midst of the marathon cherry pitting session. . . . . canned the cherries, as I do all my fruit, without sugar. Had the few that were left over from this batch of 15 half pints with my breakfast granola and yogurt.
IF, perchance, there should be a sale on cherries (last year bought none cause they were never below $4/lb!, this year they are hovering around $2.50/lb. Have seen peak of season prices get to 99c/lb) will get a few more lbs for drying.
