Even though I have two cherry trees, I haven't invested in a cherry pitter.  I actually got this tip from a cooking magazine (can't remember) but it's such a great tip, I want to share.  Supplies:  fresh cherries, paper clip, cookie sheet and bowl.

Step 1: make the pitter tool

Wash the paper clip.  Open the paper clip.  It doesn't matter if it's an 'S' shape or a 'C' shape. 
Tried it! Got ten pounds done in about thirty minutes... Now going to make jam from them.
