How to Depit Cherries

My Sweetheart wanted to dehydrate some cherries and I really dreaded having to depit the cherries. Being the awesome wife that she is, she did all the work for me on Father's Day. She also showed me a trick to depit the cherries.

Remove the stem from the cherry. Place the top of the cherry towards your dominate hand.

Place the straw at the top of the cherry. This straw was from the kid's drink cup, quite sturdy.

Push the straw into the cherry, and wiggle it around a little to find the pit, then push the pit through the bottom of the cherry.

So, if you find a great deal on cherries, don't be afraid to dehydrate then for storage.
