What is more enduring than the seasons? One of my favorite times of the year is cherry season! Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image! Cherries went on sale today for $1.86 lb, down from $4.98 last week as they are hitting the end of a peak season and there is a glut of them. I grabbed about 10 lbs today and plan to get more tomorrow as we have pallets of them at the store. At home, I flashed them into a sink of cold water and stemmed them prior to freezing, my preferred means of dealing with most things these days. Usually, I freeze them entire but it occurred to me that if I had a pitter, that I could use them in my smoothies and protein shakes. These are less than half the price of the commercially frozen ones and have not been exposed to possible partial thawing and refreezing in transit and other logistical concerns. Sent hubby an email asking if he could slip next door to the fancy kitchen wares shop on one of his breaks to get a decent implement for wifey and he replied within 30 minutes that they only carried one make but it looked like a good one (they carry only decent, durable goods), so he got it for me. He will be rewarded with fresh homemade bread, ready by the time he walks in the door this afternoon. I do so enjoy my kitchen tools and making our own food with them. Here is the device that hubby is returning with... [video=youtube_share;KXlQNbUPgdk]http://youtu.be/KXlQNbUPgdk[/video] ...and no, the blonde does not come with the pitter, lol.
