I would bring them to my dorm at the University of Texas at Austin and share with my entire floor! As a frugal college student cherries are hard to come by since they are so expensive... we would all truly appreciate such an awesome prize!

I would do a lot! - I would eat a bunch of them fresh (and introduce my 16-month old to them for the first time!) - Definitely make a cherry pie. Homemade cherry pie is like nothing else (topped with vanilla bean ice cream for sure)! - Pit the rest and make canned items like cherry pie filling, cherry-rhubarb jam, and pure cherry preserves. - My husband and I might have a cherry pit spitting contest...in honor of Cherry Fest :) Thanks for the opportunity!

If you are what you eat... This could be the year I turn into a cherry! So how would I eat 5 lbs? By the handful! And perhaps some cobbler, ooooh and on vanilla ice cream, and in savory dishes like pork chops. OK, now I'm hungry.

I have a Leifheit pitter from the time I made a liqueur with tart red cherries. Since these cherries will not be as tart, I can pit these and make a cherry slush for pureeing and freezing into popsicles or eating as is. But my favorite way to eat cherries is from a big, chilled bowl, one after another without paying attention to anything but to the texture and how sweet and refreshing they are -- while spitting out the pits into another container. If I eat enough of them, I can actually sleep all night since they're a good source of serotonin.

I love cherries and have since I was a kid growing up in Redmond, WA. I now live in SE Massachusetts and miss eating them like I did in WA. If I were to win, I would start by eating them by handfuls right out of the package. I would then bake cherry banana bread and chocolate cherry cupcakes, saute cherries, onions and apples for pork loin cutlets, and then mix up some cherry sangria to enjoy for the rest of the summer. CHERRIESSSSSS - yum.

I lived when my grandma would pick cherries right off the tree in her yard to make pie. That's what I would make and think of her.

Top Chef: Very Cherry I'll give four friends a pound of cherries each, then we each make a dish and see who's head of the pits. Then we eat, which really is the only part that matters.

Most would be eaten fresh out of the bag. Of the few that remain, some Maraschino cherries would be made to enhance a Manhattan or Old Fashioned (or 2).

After popping a pound in my mouth I would love to try a couple recipes including: bittersweet choc. Cherry sorbet, sparkling cherry limeade, cherry kale and cashew salad, cherry BBQ sauce and cherry cheesecake pancakes.
