The side benefit is getting my hands into the oil while picking out the olives. Great hand lotion.
Olives do lose flavour when the have been pitted, no matter how carefully they are packed. I find they go soft, too.

I never thought of using a cherry pitter for olives. That jury-rigged cherry pitter in the video wouldn't work for olives. They are in to tight. I don't have enough use for a cherry pitter for cherries, but for olives, yeah. I will probably get one. It will make adding olives to hummus a lot less effort. Oh yeah, we add them to tomato sauce too.

I love cherries but they don't like my blood sugar - makes it go through the roof.
