Fortunately, humans are crafty devils, and have now provably adapted to allow efficient predation on Nanking cherries. Evidence: a primitive modified cherry pitter tool. Fortunately for future archeologists, the development of the tool was captured in some equally-primitive images.
|We picked nearly a cup of these tasty-dactyls last week.|
|But they're too small for our cherry pitter!|
|Rummaging around in the garage, we found a washer that fits inside the cherry pitter, with a small enough inner diameter to hold the Nanking cherries but still let the plunger through.|
|There were no survivors.|
|We shall honor their passing with great reverence...and plenty of ice cream. (We also scattered the pits through the chicken pasture so the Nanking cherries, as a species, don't get too mad at us.)|
How do you process Nanking (or other small) cherries?
