Melon Ballers & Cherry Pitters
Is your kitchen cluttered with gadgets and gizmos that seem to be overtaking every available inch? I have drawer upon drawer stuffed with hardly ever-used stuff. When my son Jeff visited at Christmas time and needed a melon baller to scoop out the middle of some pears, he asked, “Mom, do you have a melon baller?” Of course, if I did, I wouldn’t have known where it was. Instead, he used my set of stainless steel measuring spoons which worked just fine in my humble opinion. So, you see when forced to improvise, we find we really don’t need all those gadgets and gizmos after all. I would, however, like to keep my cherry pitter.
