Cherries are $1.69/pound! I want to put some up--dehydrate or can. I tried to pit with a straw. It was too flimsy. I tried another wider diameter straw. I am not strong enough to shove it through. I tried one of the straws that is wide diameter and has a strong wall. The pit goes into the straw and I must stop and dig it out.
On the internet are several ways to pit cherries.
1) Cherry pitter. Do these work for you?
2) Hairpin. Really? I doubt I could hold the tiny pin and do this for very long. Is this easy?
3) Chopstick. I hate to put something that can hold germs into fruit I intend to dehydrate. If I were canning, maybe.
Friday night, I was thinking about this and how I pitted cherries in the past. Then, I realized I just pop the cherry in my mouth and pit it with my mouth. hmmm, that won't work now, not for dehydrating. That ditzy moment was just that, a moment.
What works for you?
I was given Peaches and Cream corn today. I am halfway through shucking it. So, I had better get on with it. I injured my right hand again, so this is slow going. These are the largest, fattest, and most perfect ears of corn. That is what I was thinking as I peeled off the shuck and silks to find a fat worm. Well, Dominique will enjoy it.
Do you ever eat Peaches and Cream corn?
