Recently I was given the opportunity to participate in {and enter!} the OXO Cherry Recipe Contest and was elated.  Not only did I get to try a new recipe ~ one from my Grandma’s Cookbook

~ but I also had the opportunity to try a new kitchen gadget ~ the OXO Cherry Pitter.  I love to bake, try new recipes and try new gadgets ~ especially ones that work and OXO has always come through for me.

I started with some fresh cherries, my recipe and the OXO Cherry Pitter.

I have never used fresh cherries in a recipe before because I had always heard that pitting cherries was not an easy task….and I believed it…until now.  The OXO Cherry Pitter worked wonderfully and even after pitting several pounds of cherries {I pitted extra for easy snacks} my hands didn’t hurt and were not fatigued at all.  The splatter shield worked great and cleanup was a breeze.
