Put a Filter on It: Cherries

July 11, 2014

It's no secret -- we love a good 'gram. Here, we'll be posting our favorite Instagrams from the food world, on a different theme each week.

Today, we're giving up on clean hands and clean clothing -- because it's cherry season.

Cherries aren't for neat freaks. If you're scared of red-stained fingers or red-stained teeth or red-stained clothing or red-stained linens, step away from the cherry pitter. But a love affair with cherries is like the most storied of romances: messy, irresistable, and -- for most of us -- inescapable. 

We love that edibleash (a.k.a. Ashley McLaughlin of Edible Perspective) isn't afraid to get a little messy and lay it all on the line for cherries. Aren't the cakes, crumbles, and snow cones worth it? 

This week, show us the risks you'd take for cherries -- and the delicious rewards of your efforts. Hack a cherry pitter (or spring for the real deal), and then get going.

We want your 'grams! Follow us, then tag your cherry creations with #F52grams -- we'll repost our favorites.

I used to work at Food52. I'm probably the person who picked all of the cookie dough out of the cookie dough ice cream.

This here is the best cherry pitter if you have a lot of cherries to get through. It really works, at least on Bing cherries (the big sweet black ones).
