I've never made a from scratch cherry pie and I thought it was time that I did. Plus, I have the best helper, a helper that will pit 2 pounds of cherries and be glad to do it.
We were able to use the Cherry Chomper that we got last year on our Vermont vacation (remember our beloved butter girl- he must be her cousin!). It doesn't get every pit everytime but it sure does make it fun for the children. Things started out relatively neat but got messy fast!
After all of the cherries were pitted it was easy to make the rest of the pie using one of Martha's recipes.
I'm not a huge fan of cooked fruit desserts, but I thought it was tasty and I did love how rustic it looked. Harris said he prefers "unroasted" cherries! Of course, we thought it also called for some vanilla ice cream. Yum.
