How to pit cherries without a cherry pitter

Aug 2012 091

Pitting a bowl of these can be messy business if you don't have a cherry pitter. Since I already have several gadgets that I hardly use and I hate buying stuff that serves only one purpose, I was thrilled to see this idea from food52. I know I might be a little late to be sharing this, but it was too good not to!
Simply place the cherry in the mouth of an empty bottle with a small neck- your typical beer bottle. 
Use a sturdy plastic straw, a pastry tip or  a plastic spout like I used (something with a sort of nozzle works better, than the chopstick that they suggest I think) to gently push the pit out, right into the bottle! Easy!

  1. ahahaha love this trick. Super cool. Reminds me the egg separating trick circulating around, maybe not quiet but just as much fun. I always worry I will jam my finger at the cherry pitter I got.
