If I won a case of cherries I would make a few pies, one for immediate consumption and a couple to freeze for the winter holidays and the rest I would bring to work and share with everyone. Always a nice treat.

I haven't had cherries in years so winning a case would let me: eat as many as I want; dehydrate some to use in the winter with oatmeal or muffins; and bake a few cherry pies to give to friends.

I I would eat them plain. My other plans would be to make cherry sorbet, cherry ice cream, cherry muffins then of course freeze some to enjoy the rest of the year.

Oh Lordy! I'd eat them, bake some scrumptious cobblers, and then ROLL around in the pits and get red stained all over! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE cherries!

Mmmmmm! I love, love, LOVE cherries! I love to eat them just as they are, but, I'd also love to make some vanilla cherry ice cream (just slice the cherries in half)....and, a few tarts...easy to make.

I would eat some, share some, make cherry ice cream and cherry turnovers, and then freeze the rest so I can eat, share and make more ice cream later.

I would eat as many as I could and then would freeze the rest for cherry pie throughout the winter. Growing up, my grandparents had a cherry tree in the back yard and we picked and froze cherries throughout the summer for cherry pie and cobblers in the winter. Oh my those were good!

What to do with a whole case of sweet cherries? First, I would do a Victory Dance around my favorite summer fruit, making sure no one is watching (too closely - my dancing isn't what it should be). Then, I would wash just enough of my prize to overeat at one sitting--probably about a pound's worth. Then, it's a race to the Internet, to find some new recipes for sweet cherries. Then, it's off to Whole Foods, to procure the rest of the ingredients needed to complete the recipes I select. Finally, I don my apron and get to work, eating as many of my prize hoard as possible as I cook. All while thinking fondly of my Whole Foods friends who've made this happy time possible. Life's a big bowl of cherries, and we can deal with the pits!

My philosophy is to eat cherries everyday during cherry season. How would I finish ten pounds, eat, make compote, make duck with cherry sauce, clafouti. Can I win two cases?

I would share them with everyone who wanted some telling them I won the Cherry Fest Giveaway at Whole Foods.

I would wash and dry them well. I would eat them all day long. Being pregnant with twins I need all the nutrients from berries. I can devour them like there is no tomorrow. I would also share my wealth with friends and family. I hope I WIN.

A case of cherries?! I would love that! Since there are seven fruit lovers in the household, we would all stand around eating the cherries and spitting the pits in the trash. I think it would take us about 3 days to finish them all off. And if it doesn't look like we can, we have family living next door that will help us.

As a child, I often spent Cherry Week at my grandparents' home, where they kept a small orchard. My grandfather and I picked cherries before he left for work, and then my grandmother and I spent the day pitting, slicing, canning, freezing, and baking. We ate cherries morning, noon, and night; I could not eat enough of her fried cherry turnovers. I would use my crate of cherries to replicate on a small scale her annual work for that week, as well as create some new memories with my own grandson, who loves making homemade ice cream with Grammie and would probably welcome cherries into that mix. How happy my dear grandparents would be to know that I too had a bounty of cherries to share with their great-great-grandson in a celebration of food and family memories!

Oh, what I'd do with a case of cherries! Well, many would just be used for some serious noshing, but I would probably have to preserve a bunch for some more serious noshing at a later date! Of course I would share in this with my family and friends as delicious and juicy cherries are not to be kept to oneself. I would also use some in a wonderful recipe I found on Whole Foods site for a vegan berry crisp desert, substituting the berries with cherries. Now that would be delish! Maybe a pie or two to share as well (with home-made crust, of course.) Oh, I hope I win. I just LOVE cherries!

I would use them for ice cream and pies.

Eat some of the fresh cherries, of course! The rest can be frozen and some canned in brandy or as jelly to give as giftsat the holidays. It would be great to open some brandied cherries or homemade jelly in the winter when we are all craving the taste of summer.

Share.....the best way to enjoy good fortune is to share the wonderful winning Cherries and to know that they are free of pesticides and were produced with best agricultural practices. I would bring half to the food bank and have half to share with friends, family, business colleagues and patients (I am a home health occupational therapist)...I think there are oodles of inspirational concepts associated with cherries. They would bring joy and be seriously yummy. I think it is impossible to look at a bowl full of cherries and NOT smile. We are after all in the back yard of Erma Bombeck (of blessed memory)......
