I LOVE cherries. If I won a case of cherries, I would eat them and eat them and eat them. I would try to save enough for a cherry pie, and freeze some to make cherry clafoutis in the middle of winter so I could have a taste of summer when it is cold and raw out.

I would make cherry pies to share with my friends who helped take care of me and my family while I was in the hospital with a MRSA-infected abscess on my leg. I would be very careful to wash my hands before cooking too (I always have, but now I'm even more paranoid!).

With my husband and three young boys, 10 lbs. of cherries would be gone in one or two days. No freezing necessary!

I would just eat them in their natural state because they are so delicious as is. I would also share some with friends.

@Enid The price per pound of cherries varies on availability, region, current store sales and organic versus conventional.

Hmmmmm....the possibilities are endless! I might make some cherry jelly (my mouth is watering thinking about it). I think, though, that I would likely share the cherries with friends and family! Nothing better than fresh cherries!

First, I would use about 3 pounds of fruit to make cherry preserves for gifts. Then i would make sorbet (my favorite!). I'd also freeze a few pounds of the cherries. Eventually, I would place small batches of the frozen fruit in the food processor with sugar and either plain yogurt or milk and cream for an instant batch of the best ice cream or froyo you've ever tasted. After reserving at least a pound for eating fresh, The rest of the fruit would be cooked with a bit of sugar to make a syrup that will flavor lemonade, iced tea, cocktails, soda, sparkling water, etc. The sweetened cooked fruit pulp left over from the syrup makes a great "fruit on the bottom" base for plain unsweetened yogurt and it can also be used for topping cheesecake, black forest cupcakes or ice cream.

I would love a case of cherries to share with my family. My 18 month old daughter loves fresh fruit and loves cherries especially. It would be fun to make her new recipes and watch her try new things!

I will definitely share with my co-workers on our floor, to expose to them the fine cherries from Washington State. I can see they may become hooked on it and start looking for these when shopping for groceries.

Our family loves cherries. If we won 10 Pounds of them, I would definately share them with friends and family. We would eat them fresh, make preserves,dry some with a dehydrator, freeze some, and bake tarts. My Grandma who is 96 loves chocolate covered cherries, so I'd make some to take to her. Thanks for the contest, I think Whole Foods is the best market in the country. I am extremely grateful that your store opened in OKC.

They're red or blush or black and gorgeous. What would anyone do? Lie in the bathtub and pour them all over yourself till you're completely submerged like 'American Beauty 2-Fruit Fetish' and don't stop till you eat them all. Kick your heels up. Throw a few in the air. Invite a friend. Seriously, what's all this making cherry cough syrup mush? If you love 'em let it show!

I would love to have the case of cherries!!! I would probably eat all of them right out of the box with my husband and 2 children. We would probably have a cherry pit spitting contest and have SO MUCH FUN! If I have cherries left I would make a raw food recipe I got from your Rochester store from Lisa who does your food ordering Yum!
