how do you get the pits out of a olive??
Step1 Place several olives side-by-side on your counter top (or cutting board if it is of substantial thickness because it needs to stay put). Press the flat side of a large blade knife against the olives. Slam the knife with the palm of your hand.
Step2 Place several olives side-by-side on the counter top or any cutting board. Using a rolling pin, apply pressure as you roll over the olives. It may take several attempts to force the pits out.
Step3 The ultimate solution is to use a cherry pitter.
