No cherry pitter? No problem! Use one of these simple methods to enjoy the tasty fruit, even without a fancy kitchen gadget.
-Use a chef’s knife. Place the cherry on a cutting surface. Using the flat side of a knife, press down until the fruit splits. Pry the two halves apart and remove the pit.
-Use a pairing knife. Hold the cherry between your thumb and index finger, and place the blade of a paring knife against the pit. Run the knife around the circumference of the cherry, twist the two halves apart, and remove the pit.
