How to Pit an Olive?
In One Fell Swoop!
As someone who spent almost 20 years trying to pit olives with limited success using only a small paring knife, I feel compelled to finally share some useful information I learned last year at Tante Marie's Cooking School. Sorry I selfishly kept this to myself for so long.
SMASH THE OLIVE OVER THE HEAD WITH A MEAT MALLET AND THE STONE WILL POP RIGHT OUT.
