It's cherry season! One of the bad things about cherries though is having to remove the pits prior to using them in most any recipe. What to do if you don't have a cherry pitter? Just grab a chopstick and a glass bottle with an opening smaller than your cherries (a glass soda bottle usually works very well). Now that you've gathered your tools, what to do?
Simply place an upside down cherry over the opening of the bottle (stem will be inside the bottle), then take your chopstick and press it through the bottom of the cherry, forcing the pit out and into the bottle. Voila, pitted cherries without a cherry pitter!
