Attention all cherry lovers!

Let me introduce you to an easy and quick way to pit cherries. Publix has cherries on sale for $1.99/lb. So, I bought a couple of pounds of cherries this morning and wanted to freeze some for smoothies. My sister and I were just discussing what a pain pitting cherries is. Neither of us own cherry pitters -- just one more gadget to find a home for.

After pitting on with a knife, and mangling the sweet flesh, I did a Google search, and found this fabulous tip.

How to pit a cherry with a paperclip -- believe me it really does work (and no need to waste valuable drawer space to store it)!

Here is a post from 2006, scroll down to see my first ever Cherry Clafouti!

No, go pit some cherries!

I just read your post about Gilliland peaches from last summer. Have you gotten any this summer-- are they available? I went to the parking lot one Tuesday morning in June and the truck was not there, but maybe it was too early in the summer.

No, no peaches this year. It is my understanding that the late freeze took a toll on the orchard so they weren't brining any. I went to the parking lot in mid-July and no peaches. Oh well, next year....

Bummer about the peaches! How are you? Must be busy...haven't seen an update to this blog in a while. I love getting your comments on the blog- thanks for leaving them!
