Summertime is cherry season! It doesn’t get much tastier than a fresh, ripe cherry off the tree.
However, nobody enjoys biting down hard onto a cherry pit and having to spit it out, or cut out the pit with a knife beforehand. I’m going to teach you how to avoid the spitting and cutting, and the giant mess.
Below is a video tutorial and a step-by-step infographic showing my favorite way of how to pit cherries! As long as you have an aluminum can lying around, as well as a chopstick or other long skinny utensil, you can pit a cherry with ease!
If you’re looking for cherries in stores this season, our partner and friends at Sage Fruit Company grows some of the best cherries in the world!

I love cherries, and I hope easing the pitting process helps you to enjoy them more too! Enjoy 🙂
