Cherry Pitter

Did you jump on the Cherryfest bandwagon?

Last week, Whole Foods had a serious special on cherries. They were $1.99/pound, which I believe to be pretty awesome. I bought two big bags and I have been eating them non-stop! They are so yummy and delicious!

Don’t cherries make you think of Forrest Gump?

I love all the different variations of red.

When cherry season comes around I always am thankful for another one of my crazy kitchen gadgets – Oxo Good Grips Cherry Pitter’>the cherry pitter!

Just like my banana slicer, I really love unnecessary kitchen gadgets!  They both serve purposes and are fabulous when you need them, but they are silly to own (i think!)

It leaves a small hole in the cherry.

It’s a pretty nifty little gadget, especially if you need to get the pits out of a bunch of cherries for smoothes, pies or what not. It also is kind of fun to use too!

Are you a cherry fan?

    I need one of those because my son loves cherries just like me and I always have to bite the half with the pit and then give him the other half. So basically, if one of us gets sick during cherry season we both do. LOL

    I just pitted 11 pounds of cherries this weekend…this would have come in handy!

    It might be unnecessary, but it sure is convenient. My mom bought one for me since I love love love cherries in the summertime and while I do love spitting out the pits at times, it definitely helps when baking…

    I think I am going to have to pick one up. I am SO on the cherry bandwagon. Have been buying at least a bag every 5 days for a few weeks.
