Cherries. Cherries. Cherries. I would make a pillow nest in the bed, and eat them. Eat each and every one of them, slowly. Cherries. Cherries. Cherries. I love cherries.

I would give some to my mother who really enjoys fresh cherries but is also on a fixed income. My daughter can eat her weight i cherries. Her birthday is in January and does not care for cake so every year she requests a cherry cobbler. Therefore, I would freeze, dehydrate, preserve the cherries for the dreary winter months. Cherry jelly/jam -- yum yum! Thank you

This year, I have been infatuated more than ever with cherries, blueberries, raspberries and blackberries. I have had a difficult time keeping my fridge stocked with these fruits. I am embarrassed to admit I have, more than once, strategically hid the cherries and berries in the refrigerator so I don't have to share them! If I were to win this many cherries, maybe there would finally be enough to cheerfully share them!! I would have a brunch at my home for my husband's and my family ( who live in town) with a huge bowl of cherries to share. This might ease my conscious about the hiding situation! Also, I would artfully decorate them in small containers to share with my patients ( I am a physician ), to brighten their day!

I'd bake cherry pie of course. :-) then make some smoothies and eat them straight. I'd freeze the rest.

I'd eat some right away of course, make Jam for Christmas presents, and have plenty left over to freeze. I use frozen fruits mixed with yogurt & milk for smoothies, defrost to make fruited breads, and serve with sweetened cream or on ice cream as dessert.

I would eat them as is, and freeze them for later when I will really want some and not have a fresh option. I would put them in smoothies and salads and cook with them. I will share them with my fmaily who also love cherries.

Share some, eat some, freeze some. I would share with a friend who suffers from arthritis & bouts of gout(hopefully cherries will have a positive effect). I would also be sure to use some to make the " Raw Cherry Crisp with Chia & Dates" recipe for an upcoming pot luck.

Mmmm... Cherries I ate cherries in 1 form or another all through my pregnancy, and now my little one has started loving them too. I would make up some Cherry puree to mix with his apples and yogurt. I would also look to preserve some to add to a balsamic and red wine sauce which I use over venison or other game meat. I am a huge fan of cherry pie and now need to eat Gluten Free so I would experiment with pastry recipes to make the ultimate pie for my new diet restrictions... Who knows, one day I could have a gluten free bakery all thanks to Whole Foods

I am the director of an aging program (seniors 60 years of age and older). I would share the cherries with all the seniors while I talk to them about eating healthy. We are on a big push for healthy eating with our seniors. I would keep enough to eat for myself and my husband; about one pound

I used to pick cherries in Michigan, both sweet and tart. I would make cherry preserves, dehydrate some to mix with granola, eat some and freeze some to use after cherry season.

Since I really like cherry cobblers, that will be the first ting I make. Then there are the cherry pies. I have two favorites... hot and cold. Then their is cherry preserves, and they can't be beat when spread on fresh homemade bread. I just recently acquired a pressure cooker so we can do some canning. My son is thrilled with the idea of canning jams and preserves. 10 pound of cherries would be a great start for this new project.

I would just eat them as I love them as is. I'd freeze some too!

I would make a sweet cherry pie for staters! Then I would make cherry chocolate brownies and a cherry reduction for pork chops. Most importantly, I'd give half the case to my mom who grew up on a cherry farm and misses having fresh cherries every summer!

I would love to share them with friends at the various dinners and cookouts, but also pitting and freezing some to use later for my morning steel cut oatmeal breakfast!!! Delicious, oh yes!!!

I would eat and eat cherries like a little piggy, share some with others, and bake goodies to share with everyone!

Thanks for having this contest! I'd keep a small amount for my family and donate the cherries to The Soup Kitchen in Boynton Beach, FL. They feed the hungry, and serve a lot more than soup!

For sure there would be much jams and ice cream. I would dry and cure some maybe even pickle. Some would be smoked for bbq sauce and some grilled for charred lemonade. You should be able to grow at least one cherry tree with all those seeds right? Maybe plant all the seeds randomly around town so one day there will be fresh cherries for all. And there will be much rejoicing.

I would freeze them to have them in the winter. I eat them for breakfast. They are good for gout and arthritis

I would share the cherries with my neighbors. It is so important for others to be made aware of the benefits of eating well. Cherries are a low glycemic blood purifier and so full of nutrients and antioxidants. How can it get any better than thIs? I always look forward to the day that Whole Foods get their first crop of cherries!

I would remember the sweetness of falling in love with my fiance summers ago. A farmer's nephew, he would give me endless samples at the farmers' market. I just kept going back for more!
