Last night I was pitting all the cherries before they went bad and began processing them to put them up. I was doing deep red Ranier cherries, very ripe ones. It was my first go at pitting cherries and I was scattering the juice all over the place before I got the technique down. Fortunately I got it all up off the counter without staining. But my fingers got deeply stained. I took a shower and scrubbed thoroughly, but my hands and worst of all my nails still look filthy even though, apart from cherry pigment, they’re immaculately clean. It was embarrassing that I had to go shopping today and I tried to keep my hands hidden. Trying not to feel like I’m replaying the role of Laura Palmer in the fingernail scene in Twin Peaks Fire Walk With Me.
So do any of you Heloises out there know how to get cherry juice stains out? (Need answer ASAP.)
