Chopstick Cherry Pitter

We’ve taught you how to core a strawberry with a straw, so this trick to pit a cherry without a specialized gadget from Food 52 is right up our alley.

Simply place a cherry over the opening of a bottle (you can use a clean soda bottle if you don’t have a small one that fits), and use a chopstick to push the pit through the other side. What’s so smart about this tip is that the pits automatically go into the bottle leaving almost no mess to clean up.

Just be sure to wear an apron because cherry juice stains! See more photos at Food 52.
