Each year I have huge quantities of small cherry plums (roughly 2x cherry size). The problem is the pits. Is there a large mesh cheesecloth available I could try?
- I've tried cooking partially, then a food mill. The pits get jammed under the wiper.
- I've tried a cherry pitter. Messy and slow.
- I've tried a paperclip to get the pits out. Slow.
- I've tired of cutting the pits out.
Can I cook up the jam partially then run through a large mesh bag, to separate the pits? Maybe a woven polyester? What kind of mesh bag would be large enough to pass pulp, small enough to hold pits, strong enough to survive the twist and squeeze,and also food safe?
