[NAFEX] Nanking Cherry pitter

    I have had two successes pitting Nanking Cherries:  I had a plastic 
cherry pitter that I didn't mind if it got ruined so I adapted it to pit 
Nankings.  I bought some epoxy putty (available in most any hardware store) 
and used it to make the pitter hole smaller and had limited success with it. 
I know what I could have done better in adapting it but didn't proceed 
because I bought a Villaware food strainer with the extra attachments.  I 
use the Pumpkin Screen with the Grape Spiral - The screen separates the pulp 
from the cherries and the spiral sends the seeds and skins to the end where 
they won't mix with the pulp.
