Celebration of Cherries! To include, cherry glazed grilled chicken, spinach salad with cherries and walnuts, cherry cocktails, and last but not least, cherry cobbler :-)

I'd eat them, have a pit-spitting contest, save some pits to try to plant some cherry trees, and make lots of pies.

I would thank my lucky stars and get out the canning gear. I have always wanted to make homemade cherry preserves and cherry/mango chutney but cherries have always been a bit too pricey down here. I am originally from Michigan where they grow some of the best cherries in the world and it be amazing having an abundance of them to work with. We would be very grateful. Of course I would eat a few myself! Sshhhh....

We would eat as many as we could and then make gluten free cherry pie (in Whole Foods GF Bakehouse pie crust, of course!) and perhaps try some other GF baked goods - turnovers? struedel? Enough to share! Yum!

Lemon cherry crostada, hot from the oven, with a scoop of fresh vanilla ice cream. My toddler also loves cherries blended into her yogurt as a special morning breakfast.

I would teach my children about how to pick good, fresh cherries (from your article), then plant a few cherry trees from the seeds that we eat with them. We would bag them and take them to a homeless shelter or share with those less fortunate. Then, try some new recipes with them. I've never dried out cherries, but that sounds yummy!!

With so much going on in my life, and with so many cherries that I could win in one case - I could cherry(sh)every moment. LOL! My 1st year anniversary with my wonderful husband is in a few weeks...I could make him a romantic cherry pie. The people in my office are into healthy eating...I could bring fresh cherries for a healthful snack. My mom recently passed away...I could take Dad some sweet cherry tartlets. And, I know me - I am a foodie - I would do fantastic cherry experiments in the kitchen. I love cherries!

I WOULD MAKE cheery cherry turnovers and the BEST cherry pie known to tastebuds, sharing the fantastic creations with family, friends, and the local homeless shelter :)

My husband are on day 5 of the Whole30. We've cut out all sugar except for fruit now & then. 10 lbs of cherries would give us low sugar snacking for now and weeks to come!

I would use the case of cherries to make pie filling and preserves. Thanks for the chance to win!

10 pounds of cherries! Oh My! I would take about half of them to work and share them with the co-workers on my floor. We're all trying to eat healthier and a nice fresh fruit cherry snack would surely hit the spot. The rest, well... after my family and I ate all that we could, I would clean and pit the remainder and freeze them for later use. The uses are endless... Cherries in yogurt, yum; cherries in smoothies, oh, yeah; cherries in lemon aid and lime aid would surely hit the spot. Even the poochies would get a few of the pitted ones since they love their fruit.

I would just eat them plain. I don't get fancy with my fruit. I doubt I would even freeze any of them because I could easily go through 10 lbs of fruit in about 2 weeks.

What I would do is give the Cherries to my wife Becky. She loves Cherries and she never wins anything I think it would make her day. She is a baker so I am sure she can thinks of great stuff to bake for her co-workers and our family. Plus it would be cool too see the look on her face if she did win. Good luck everyone!

Fresh cherries,wow! I'd eat some, freeze some, make some cherry juice to be used both fresh & frozen. Of course I'd share some fresh cherries and cherry juice with friends who suffer from inflammatory diseases such as arthritis, & gout. I'd also donate some for my temple's Monday night meal to feed the homeless including one of your yummy sounding recipes.

We would eat as many as we could, and then I would start baking and freezing and making jam! The jam we made last summer is just about gone, so winning a case would be amazing!!

I absolutely love cherries! I would definitely share with my friends, freeze them, try to make whatever I possibly could with the cherries. Most of all enjoy them!

My family loves cherries! When I was little my grandma used to freeze the cherries and defrost them, just slightly, by running them under warm water. It was the best thing ever to come in from playing outside, all hot, to eat some slightly frozen cherries. So, to pass on this to my daughter, I would do the same thing!

Oh my goodness, there are so many things to do with a whole case of cherries! I would make cherry everything! Pie, crisp, jam, sauce for my ham. Eat, freeze, dehydrate, put them in a cake. Cookies, brownies, share, to show how much I care.
