cherry season. Cherry season means pie. And pie means pitting cherries which means I need a new pitter...
I spotted this whimsical cherry stoner at Bed, Bath & Beyond a couple months back. Lawman wasn't as amused as I was and admittedly, in our little NY apartment we don't exactly have room for whimsical, but I do need a new cherry pitter. Mine broke last summer. Anyone have experience with either the OXO or the Norpo cherry pitter? Or do you have another cherry pitting technique that's worthwhile?
In other cherry news...
*If you're lucky enough to be near Traverse City, Michigan the National Cherry Festival is going on through July 11th.
*Speaking of Traverse City and Pies, if all that cherry pitting is too much for you to handle, Grand Traverse Pie Company has you covered. Their Cherry Crumb pie is delicious--I still fondly remember one I ate some years back. Pies will run you $24.99 and shipping starts at $14.99.
*Hopefully this cherry post will inspire Blondie to bake her oh so, tasty Cherry Vanilla Cupcakes. Please?
