What do you do with all those cherry pits, well lets use the cherry pits for fuel. Cherry pits are a renewable energy source, yes its green energy. Cherry pits for fuel is healthier, it offers significant public health benefits. Cherry pits produce about 9,523 Btu per pound with little ash, and burns hotter than wood pellets.

Now I use cherry pits in my BBQ for fuel and it works great, you even get a nice smoked flavor. First thing you do is, dry out the cherry pits in a dehydrator, keep them in a jar or container until your ready to use them, pretty simple. Since dried cherry pits get real hot and burn slow, we'll only need a small amount of charcoal and place the cherry pits on top of the charcoal or wrapped in tinfoil.

Thanks for the detailed explanation of how to dry cherry pits!

I never thought of using them as fuel. Is it me, or would that make for some sweeter BBQ flavor?

If you love a smoked flavor then its for you.

I never knew that! Thank you for sharing! ☆☆☆☆☆😎

Thank you for reading my blog.

I told you I was going to check out the cherries. I did not know that about the pit but it makes sense. See Ya!

You are welcome @bola! I do like those cherries.

That's so interesting! I love cherries, so now I have a good excuse to eat lots and lots of them!

Funny, thanks for reading my blog.

Thanks for bringing this up...so many things that we use in our day to day activities if researched can be put to use in some other constructive way rather than throwing them away in the garbage...I will definitely try this out

With all the cherries people buy at this time of the year, saving some cherry pits adds a bonus to your next BBQ.

The pits are filled with organic sugar compounds which explains the additional heat. If you let them ferment a little you could make wine :) They could also be mashed up and used as a great fuel cell energy source!!!

Yes your right.

Good Recomendation :D

@bola You'd probably need a lot of pits in order to make a big enough fire place

A handful of cherry pits is good enough to add to your charcoal.

Next time I indulge in cherries I will remember this! Absolutely hilarious.
