Have you ever tried to pit a cherry without a cherry pitter? Well, before yesterday, I had never worked with cherries at all. But after some research, I found two frugal methods to pit cherries.
Use a chef’s knife to squish the cherry like garlic. Um, can you say MESSY? I squirted juice all over my kitchen. I only did this for the first cherry and knew I had to try something else. (Plus, I was worried that I was losing all the juice.)
Use a paper clip to pull the pit out. Ok. So, my paper clip didn’t work quite as well as the one in the video, but this worked really well. I was able to pit a whole bag of cherries in less than a half an hour. (I thought that was pretty good for a first timer.)
I only missed one pit, and of course, hubby got that bite of cobbler. He doesn’t care for cherries much, and even he ate a bowl of this!
Shelly’s Gluten Free Cherry Cobbler
3 cups of washed and pitted cherries
1/8 cup of white sugar
1 T arrowroot flour (or other gluten-free flour)
3/4 cup of gluten free oats
1/2 cup of brown sugar
1/4 cup of almond flour (or other gluten-free flour)
1/2 cup of melted butter
Grease the bottom of your cobbler dish and pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees. Mix cherries, white sugar, and arrowroot flour in the bottom of the pan. Meanwhile, mix all other ingredients in a medium mixing bowl. Spread the crumb topping over the top of the cherry mixture.
Bake for 35-45 minutes at 350 degrees, or until crust is brown and cherries are bubbly.
