Roasted Cherries, Store Bought

I want to make a dessert that calls for roasted cherries, but i can't go through the work of pitting a bunch of cherries one at a time, does anyone know if roasted cherries can be bought in the store in a jar or can, already pitted? OR, does anyone know if there is any kind of cherry pitter available that will pit a bunch of cherry at once instead of having to do them one at a time?

  1. It's not necessary to pit cherries before roasting them. Once they're roasted a simple squeeze usually pops the pit out.
    In any case, they need to be very ripe for roasting. Cherry season is loooong past in our region. We'll have to wait until next year to get them again.
