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

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.

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).
