How to Pit Olives

February  4, 2011

To kick off this week's contest, Your Best Recipe for Citrus and Olives, A&M show two ways to pit olives. Merrill is a fan of the side-of-the-knife whack, while Amanda defers to her trusty meat pounder.

This week's videos were shot and edited by our buddy Drew Lavyne, the founder/director of Six Minute Stories and the producer of the super helpful Teach Me Sushi iPhone app -- and the new Teach Me Sushi Expert app (glimpses of both below).

You two are funny. You probably already know that.
