I would first set up my canning jars to make a batch of cherry preserves. The remainder would be used for pies, toppings and salads. It would be a wonderful treat.

Would share with family and friends after eating as much as I could with my 3 year old grandson who loves cherries and would be thrilled seeing 10 lbs of cherries!

We would eat and enjoy the cherries with family and friends. We would make pies and cobblers and enjoy these too. We would have a Cherry Diet for 2 weeks whole....and that from Whole Foods too !!! What a cherrylicious gift.

I would eat every last one of those cherries. I am six months pregnant with my first child, and I am craving cherries. All kinds, all the time. Cherry jello, cherry ice cream and yogurt, black cherry soda, maraschino cherries, and especially fresh, crisp whole cherries. Cherries were always a food I liked, but this is just getting crazy. This craving started in April, before cherries were available here in Philadelphia, and let me tell you, that was not a fun time. Now that cherry season is here, I think I eat about a half pound of cherries per day. PER DAY! It is expensive. I am starting to understand why Rapunzel's mother sold her to a witch to fulfill her lettuce cravings. My friends tell me that craving healthy foods means the baby is a girl- we'll see. In the meantime, all I know is, this baby wants cherries. So please, give the cherries to the pregnant woman and back away slowly, and nobody gets hurt.

My 97 year old mother and I would immediately start eating as many cherries as possible. We would share this magnificent bounty with her aides.

What wouldn't I do with a case of cherries?! The first thing that comes to mind is sugar free preserves but I'm sure I'll think ofna thousand other ways to use them, yum!

Dehydrated cherries are easy to make in a low oven, they are delicious and when added to chocolate chip cookies. Pitted cherries in clafouti for a company breakfast or even dessert at my next dinner party would be delicious. Cherry Sangria with some red wine and brandy with cherries frozen into ice cubes would be spectacular. The local soup kitchen would be more than happy to accept the cherries also.

I work in a wonderful nursing home and my residents LOVE cherries! I would host a " Whole Foods Cherries Jubilee." We would have a " Cherry-pit Spitting Contest" and "Guess How Many Cherries Are In The Jar" and invite the media so EVERYONE would know how AWESOME your company is! Celebrate SUMMER!

Just to eat them is a treat!!!! On a serious note, my husband suffers from gout. Quess what the best natural cure is, that is right, cherries. Eating cherries, drinking cherry juice, eating cherry pie, cobbler, chutney is the best medicine for gout. Cherries make the swelling and inflamation go away and of course of the pain goes away. If he loads up on cherries he can then eat a little of a forbidden food he really likes. As for me I am diabetic so I am experimenting with natural sugars in preparing a prize winning cherry pie and cobbler. I won prizes for "normal" pie and cobbler so look out as I will keep experimenting til I find the best cherry pie yet. One that everyone can eat.

Though I love cherries I have never eaten one fresh, nor cooked with them. For the past 5 years I have been teaching myself to cook from scratch (removing preservatives, etc. from my diet) and to try new things. If I were to win, I would use the cherries to learn everything I can about cooking, prepping, EATING THEM... and not just from some sauce or some filling someone else made.

Honestly, I would eat most of them. I would try and share. I would make wine with some and freeze the remaining so my : ) could last for a few months. O, and I would email you "THANK YOU!"

Freeze some, save some for snacking, pit some & combine with citrus fruit to add to homemade sangria!

I would stuff myself with the fresh cherries! If there are any left over after my family devours them, then I might make a cherry pie for the first time.

I would definitely not be selfish with 10lbs of Cherries!! I remember as a kid my father turning me onto cherries, so I would be sharing this yummmy summer fruit with him. I've seen soooo many cherry recipes I want to try as well, such as soups, sauces, and as a filling in burgers. And of course some would be frozen for smoothies, and the rest....would be eaten while enjoying this wonderful summer weather!
