Cherry Stoning

One day early in June, we received a surprise package from Austria. Inside was a letter, a family photo, and a cherry stoner.

The letter was from a long-time blog reader. She shared how she found years ago, how our families differed and how they were the same, and how as a family practice physician she now passes on practical information to her patients that she learned from Titus2.

She said when she read our blog post last year about our cherry pitting, she wanted to get us a cherry stoner from Europe, and that’s exactly what she did! She also shared a family favorite cherry recipe that we want to try.

We werenโ€™t given any cherries this year but we bought some from the store to try out our cherry stoner. Wow! What a great, easy way to pit cherries. Thank you, my friend, for your encouragement and for our cherry stoner!

Trusting in Jesus,

“Blessed shall be the fruit of thy body, and the fruit of thy ground,
and the fruit of thy cattle, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep.”
(Deuteronomy 28:4)

  1. That’s a sleek little gadget! I purchased a cherry stoner several years ago (after spending a grueling evening trying to pit enough cherries for jam using a paring knife) but my stoner is a tabletop unit that takes up quite a bit of space. This would be so handy to store!

  2. What a lovely surprise gift from a thoughtful lady! Thanks so much for sharing!
