    Question for Mrs Turf

    My family has a cherry tree that bears like you wouldn’t believe. My sister used to make the best cherry preserves, I used them to make glazes for pork and BBQ sauce. My question to you, (or anyone else) is how do you pit these things? I think I told you guys, my sister died Christmas Day last year so I can’t ask her.

    Any help is appreciated
    Thankee

    I would guess she had a sour cherry tree, Montmorency probably. Those are really soft skinned and I just put on latex gloves, slide my gloved thumb nail starting where the stem attached to the cherry and towards the pointed end of the cherry. I do this over a bowl to catch the juice.
    I've never understood the need to buy a cherry pitter and the gentle aroma that comes off the cherries goes back with me to my childhood.

    If you have a sweet cherry, you might need a pitter, they are a lot ornerier.

      While cleaning out Mom's kitchen yesterday, we ran across an unopened cherry pitter, amongst a few other things that she didn't use. One more thing added to the estate sale pile.
