it’s the pits

olive pits
I loooooooooove olives, but the pits I could do without. Just now, after gnawing the meat off some, I got to wondering how pitted olives (which is so confusing to me since they have no pits) get depitted. So I googled… has a DIY video, you just have to sit through a mini commercial first. offers 3 options, and this cherry pitter which is just plain fascinating.

Other than gnawing, how do you depit?
