I would make a tuna or salmon tartar tower with cherries and avocado.

Nothing like cherry-stained fingers and ruby-red lips on my little one after she gobbles up a bowful of plump, fresh cherries! Five pounds would make for a colorful summer. :)

I would love to savor 5 lbs of luscious red cherries in fruit smoothies, fruit salad or just one by one, however once my four kids spied them, I'd be lucky to get a handful! Can't help it if I raised smart kids!

Oh my!I would get my fill on the cherries. Cherries from the State of Washington are the best in this land and this is the best time of the year to enjoy cherries.

I'd can them: cherries + bourdon, sugar, lemon. To enjoy over the years, like my uncle did.

Really, there is only one way to eat these.... outdoors, on a warm summer evening, surrounded by family on the back porch while having a PIT SPITTING CONTEST! Whoever makes it to the big oak wins! Believe it or not, the little ones beat out my hubby and I - so the game is on this year!!!!

Pie! I love cherry pie. Every bit of those delicious cherries would go into pie. I might even share ;)

As tempting as those suggestions are, I'll just eat the cherries (and maybe share them with my family, LOL). Thanks for the giveaway!

I would bake them, eat them like candy, and share with everyone I saw until they were gone.

I always buy my cherries from Whole Markets....they are delicious!!!! I wish I could say I have an amazing recipe but I can never wait to eat them so they never last long enough to make it into a pie or jam :) I always take them to work and eat them as a snack. My 1 tip is to clean them before eating them. I use 6 cups of water and 2 cups of white distilled vinegar and soak for an hour. You can use this to safely wash any fruit or veggies :)

We'd throw a cherry party! Bowls of cherries set out for munching (the best way to enjoy fresh cherries!) and maybe some cherry ice cream! A cherry seed spitting contest may be involved (as we have boys and so do most of our friends).

If I won 5 lbs. of cherries, I would immediately pit and freeze them so that I could enjoy these amazing fresh creations all year long (or as long as they last). I would put them in smoothies, make a cherry crunch for desert, make a cherry pie/tart and just pop them in my mouth as a special cold treat! They are excellent for relieving pain and helping one to sleep, so I definitely would and do use them for those reasons. Another one of God's perfect creations!

Well, 5 lbs of cherries wouldn't last very long in our house. We like to just eat them by the handfuls and if there's any left, make them into smoothies or ice cream. Yum!

I'd make an assortment of gluten free baked goodies, including a pie and cobbler. I'd also make preserves and lots of smoothies!

Eat them on the drive to the beach with my girlfriend, then lay on the sand and enjoy them together.

Eat some and freeze the rest for Yummy Smoothies all year long! :)

I would eat some straight, dip some in chocolate, bake some pies and if there are any left, I'd depit them and freeze them for smoothies.
