[MUSIC] I'm Justin Chapple from Food and Wine's test kitchen. Join me as I demonstrate mad genius tips. [MUSIC] Who owns a cherry pitter? I don't own a cherry pitter. Do you own a cherry pitter? And this tip shows you how to pit cherries without one, using a plain old empty wine bottle. Preferably one you enjoyed the night before and a plain chopstick. So what you're gonna want to do is take a nice big plump cherry. You're gonna set it right on top of the wine bottle, just like this and remove the stem to reveal this cute little divot in the cherry, which is gonna be your guide. To where the pit is. With the wide side of your chopstick and with just a little bit of pressure, knock the pit right into the wine bottle and you have this perfectly pit, delicious cherry. And if you're me, because you can't wait to eat cherry pie, We're going to eat it right now. Let's try it again. [BLANK_AUDIO] Right on top of the bottle, and. It's like magic. [MUSIC] [BLANK_AUDIO]
