DIY Cherry Pit Remover
Monday, May 30, 2016
Hope everyone has a great Memorial Day. I feel bad saying "Happy Mermorial Day. It just hits me wrong because people are mourning this day. However I understand the celebration. I am thankful for our service men and I pray for them and their families.
I will not be doing much celebrating today. Its a regular work day for me. However, when I get home, me and Nick plan to cook out some tuna steaks with trimmings and relax around the house.
Since it is a holiday and many will be cooking out, that means a lot of fruit salads and desserts will be made. Some of those will include cherries. Cherry is also my favorite flavor of anything sweet. Due to the expense, I dont get to purchase them much. To my happy suprise,They were on sale at Walmart this weekend so I bought a pound or so.
Before I head to work, I want to share with you this really cool idea of getting out of the pits, I mean getting pits out of your cherries. I cant take credit for this one because I actually found it online, I just can't remember where I seen it.
First, you will need an old fork. Just a thin cheep one will do. You will also need some needle nose pliers.
Bend the two end pongs down. You now have that rock and roll sign going on.
Next, take the pliers and bend the tips of of the other two pongs, creating two tiny hooks.
Insert it in the cherry and find the seed.
And....Pop! You have a pitted cherry. Isnt this great?
Of course you may not like this idea because it takes all the fun out of eating them. Sort of like watermelon. Whats the fun of a seedless watermelon?
