Can't find it! Amazon have it but won't send to NZ... grrrr!

Can anyone help please?

What? make your own, cherries are in season now!

I was going to, but removing the stones would take forever when dealing with 2 kilos of cherries LOL.

The bottled cherries aren't great either.

That's not hard, you need a cherry pitter. You just put them in and squeeze. I do it... or you make your filling etc, then put through a colander, the colander catches the pips... .

Didn't know there was any such thing as a cherry pitter, thanks!

Although cherries here are still around $13 a kilo so it may just be an occasional dessert!

A cherry pitter is the same as an olive pitter. Better still you can get one with a box to collect the stones and this is great if you have heaps of cherries to do. It looks like this. http://www.norpro.com/store/products/deluxe-cherry-pitt

Yes you can. Have seen it at Woolworths and foodtown and in the Bristish food shops.

Try in one of those British food stores, used to have it as a child in uk, probably find it way... to sweet now.

Have a can in my cupboard. Hartley's Red Cherry Fruit Filling.
Manufactured by HL Foods Ltd in the UK and their website is www.premierfoods.co. uk - don't know if that will help you but its a start! ! Bought it at the big Pak n Save at Manukau in their "international foods" aisle. Have also seen it at the English Foods store in Devonport.

I am pretty sure barkers do one.

Wow thanks everyone. Have tried paknsave here but no luck. Will ring the UK shop and see if they have it. Will also be purchasing a cherry pitter.

Thanks so much for your help :)
