Cherry season is about to begin in our neck of the woods. Pick-your-own cherry season starts on Friday, at one of our local fruit farms.
Picking cherries is loads of fun, but pitting them…well it’s the pits…literally! In an effort to forever eliminate this grueling task from our cherry jamming efforts we found a better way. Our push button Cherry Pitter fits on regular mouth canning jars! All of the cherry pits go into the jar…no waste & no mess! Needless to say, we were in love at our first pitting.
We put together this quick video to show you how easy it is!
In celebration of cherry season we are giving away one Cherry Pitter to a lucky winner! Hurry, this giveaway is ending on Thursday, June 19, 2014! Enter yourself to win at the end of the post.
Now that we’ve saved you a ton of time pitting cherries, maybe you’ll add an extra cherry recipe to your list this year. We know a few folks who do the most delightful things with cherries!
