They aren’t just for spitting any more!
Cherry pits can be used for filling a variety of toys and crafts. Any bean or rice filled craft project can be created instead with clean, dry cherry pits. Cherry pits also possess unique properties that make them ideal filling for hot or cold pads. Cherry pits have three times the heating capacity and heat retention properties of chemicals. Heating pads filled with cherry pits can be warmed in the microwave or kept in the freezer and function as cold packs.
