Well, after pitting 20 pounds of cherries yesterday (and planning to get more -- I LOVE tart cherries), I have a lot of cherry pits. And I've heard/read that you can use them for pillows/warmers, much like buckwheat hulls or rice. But how do I get prepare the pits? I have them soaking right now so I can get the flesh off them, but I want to make sure that I don't wind up with fruit flies hovering around my head. Thanks for any info, Pony!
