Having never made a pie before (and failing to consult my mom first), I didn't know why the tapioca was necessary (I dislike the taste of tapioca & another reader said she didn't use it & it turned out fine). Needless to say my pie was SOUPY, but my tasters raved about my "cherries jubilee" :) The fresh cherries made all the difference! I pitted them with an unused, clean air-pump needle (for filling a volleyball, for example) as the straw & paperclip ideas didn't work too well for me. It worked amazingly well! I inserted the needle into the opening from the stem, loosened up the pit by circling around it, then popped it out from the other side...very little juice was lost and the knob on the other end was a great grip!
