  • Cherry stoner
  • Vegetable peeler


To stone with a cherry stoner:


METHOD 1: This convenient tool pushes the stone through the fruit, leaving a full hollow.  As a result, more of the cherry juices will be released when the cherries are cooked.

To stone with a vegetable peeler:


METHOD 2: Insert the tip of the peeler in the stalk end, rotate around the stone, and scoop it out. The result will be neater than with a cherry stoner, and more juice will be retained.
