Since the city I live in is now under threat of a major wildfire and 32,000 people have already had to be evacuated from their homes, I feel that even though I really love eating fresh cherries, I would have to give your wonderful cherries to Care and Share to be distributed to those people who have had to leave their homes not knowing if they will have a home to go back to in the future. At this time I am blessed to live on the side of town away from the fire but this could change at any time. A treat such as fresh cherries would mean so much to the people that have had to leave their homes with only what they could put in their cars. I know this is not the reply that you expected but this fire and what it is doing to our city and our people is what is uppermost is everyone's mind. But it does seem to be bringing the best out in most of our community. Thanks for growing such great cherries. I look forward to seeing them in our stores if we are still here.

I would give some to my husband to put in the oatmeal he makes for us every morning, with cherries being one of our favorite ingredients. I would take them for lunch and snack on them at night as I add them to a bowl of ice cream. I would put out in a bowl on the 4th of July and hand out small baggies of them as favors to all my guests.

I would pit and, together with my elementary age sons, eat a couple of the pounds, as we bake cherry muffins together in the kitchen. The last 5-6 pounds would make lovely sweet cherry wine, perfect for family gatherings this winter.

Is this heaven? Cherries are my favorite fruit, and the season is way too short for me. If I had a whole case I would definitely eat them for breakfast, lunch and dinner for about a day, then if there are any left, I would dry most of them, and freeze the rest. I've never had any cherries left though, so I can't promise the freezing part, and I have higher hopes for the dried cherries.

I would bake a cherry pie, make a fruit smoothie, toss them into a fruit salad, make cherry filled danish, cherry jam, Cherry Garcia ice cream, cherry cheesecake, and eat them as a delicious snack wherever I go!

Chilled, straight from the fridge, picnicking with a dozen family members.

We might freeze some or add some to vanilla ice cream, but the vast majority of them I would simply eat raw. In large quantities at a time. LOVE cherries :)

My seven year old is allergic to many fruits...cherries are one of her favorite that she CAN actually eat. She'd probably eat them with just about anything! :)

I would eat lots of cherries & share lots of them too. My 8 year old daughter loves to eat cherries, and I love to see her face after she eats them, red juice all over!

I would enjoy eating them everyday and share with my families and friends. They love cherries just as much as I do. Cherries not only taste great, they are also great for insomnia.

I love shopping at Whole Foods & the friendly and informative staff. My 93 y.o. mother has recently been hospitalized and is now in rehab. I would share them with mom and other folks who are residing at the rehab/nursing home. There would be mini cherry muffins, cherry ice cream or eating them right out of the box. Depending on the residents abilities I would encourage them to share their experiences, recipes, likes or dislikes. We will discuss the history, types of cherries, nutrition as well as some trivia.

One of the first things I'll make is cherry preserves, followed by homemade cherry ice cream or cherry granita. I'm sure I can find loads of things to do with my free cherries!!! My mouth is already watering as we speak.....

Washington cherries, are delicious. There are so many recipes with cherries it makes my mouth water and so hard to choose. Desserts, oh my all the desserts, glazes- like cherry glaze for ice cream or cherry horseradish for dipping chicken nuggets in, cherry pineapple green pepper glaze for ham or kabobs just to name a few. A wonderful fruit for any sweet tooth. So what would i do with a case of cherries?? I would take some of it for my self and donate a large part to the local food shelf so many people can enjoy rhem too..

I grew up in OH with cherry trees all over the neighborhood. I would make cherry jam, cherry pies, and I might even consider resusitating the childhood favorite of jello with cherries. Mmmm.

Maybe someday you'll pick me among the crowd To win the contest and share you at a huge family gathering proud Oh cherry amour, pretty little fruit that I adore You're the only fruit my heart leaps for How I wish that you were mine!!!!

I belong to a non-profit for widowed and divorced adults. Every week, the org. provides coffee and pastries, esp. donuts. I would LOVE to bring in small bags of cherries so each person could eat better....even if it is just for one night. Singles often eat the worst, as it is!
