Here's How To Pit Cherries Quickly And Easily Without A Pitter
Cherries are a sweet summer treat, but getting them to consumers can be quite the challenge. In North America, cherries are grown primarily in California, Washington, Oregon, Michigan and Wisconsin. Unlike the avocados of Mexico or bananas of the Caribbean, cherries are picked when ripe. As a result, they must be delivered to supermarkets quickly and without damage, a fact that makes them more expensive than the majority of fruit. While cherries are delicious raw or baked into a pie, there is always the nuisance of the pit. Spitting them into your yard or a bowl is okay in casual situations, but it isn't ideal when young children or cooking is involved. Luckily, Handimania has a simple and clever hack that will leave you scratching your head and wondering, "Why didn't I think of that?"
