This is from a collection of recipes from books I own, but which I haven't myself tried yet. However, you can have faith that at least the authors themselves have tried them, so they're not deadly or anything.
Remove stems from cherries, cut cherries in half and remove pits. Crush cherries slightly. Crush cherry stones by placing them ina plastic or cloth bag and hitting them with a hammer.
