Default Need To Pit Fresh Cherries?

I just had to share this great tip that I found on the net this weekend. I used it while making a sinfully rich fresh cherry cobbler/crisp. Neighbor had a sour cherry tree just bursting with ripe fruit and I used this tip to very quickly pit all of the cherries.

Use a straw and poke into the cherry. The pit stays in the straw and rarely squishes the cherry itself. Just drop the pit out and go onto the next cherry. So simple, but so useful! I used a McDonald's straw that I saved and washed.

That sounds handy! Fresh cherries never usually last long enough around here for me to make anything out of them though!

Great idea! I wonder if it works on olives as well. We have a cherry pitter that we use for olives. Great tool, but I have limited drawer space in my kitchen and would love to discard a spare gadget if I can!

Not sure how it would work on olives. They do seem to have a firmer texture, but it would be worth a try.
