I would share them with neighbors family and friends! Who doesn't love cherries? They brighten any ones day and not only that but they are very nutritious and healthy to eat! Cherries are mostly water therefore you can eat them all day and not gain weight and actually they help people lose weight through their slight detoxification properties. I would also use the opportunity to educate people on why they should be buying organic and also the healing qualities of eating fresh fruits like cherries!!! I am a cancer survivor and I learned that cherries actually help to protect you from cancer, so I make a point of eating them every chance I get!!

We love, love cherries! I make jams, jellies, dry them and freeze them. They are great in the middle of winter as a ray of summer sunshine!

Oh, how my family loves cherries. I would make pies, cobblers, jams. I would dehydrate then, freeze them and eat them fresh. I would send them to work with my husband in his lunch. I would pack them for day trips with my son and family. I would share them with my wonderful neighbors. I would enjoy all of them!

I would bake pies with most of them and share with family/friends and snack on the rest or include in salads. Would also freeze some to make the goodness last as long as possible.

I would.share some with friends in need. The rest my family would consume fresh, in pie, ice cream, salads, yogurt, and other ways. We love cherries but they are a little expensive.

I'd bake with them, make cherry-almond preserves and of course, share with my cherry loving family.

I would freeze a few with the stems on, as frozen cherries make a great treat to pop in and munch on during these super hot days. I'd also make cherry cobbler and cherry pie - as well as having fresh cherries to snack on and share. Then, I'd ask my mom to help me make jelly or preserves. Mostly - I would really enjoy all those cherries!

I would fight my two year-old for them! He loves them so much, he would probably win.

i have been looking forward to this summer's fruit season since we bought a chest freezer last fall. i want to have frozen cherries for muffins and smoothies in the fall and winter. however, i must admit my favorite use for cherries is to eat them raw. i cannot get enough of fresh cherries. as soon as i get them home i wash and stem them, and i keep them in a bowl in the refrigerator. they don't last more than a few days!

I have a favorite spiced cherry jam recipe that I'd love to have that many cherries for! And I'd definitely be nibbling on plenty of them fresh as I was cooking. Mmmmm!

I LOVE cherries. This would be so awesome to win. I would make cherry butter and cherry pie and just eat them as a healthy snack.

I would love to just eat them! I would probably donate some to the food bank I volunteer at and share with my family, but for the most part I would love to just snack on them all day!

Ooh. What a great offer! I would make my famous low sugar preserves to give as gifts throughout the year to my son's teachers and caregivers and for our friends and family. I make tons of jam for this purpose every summer and it's just a nice way to let all these good people know how much they are appreciated and to enjoy the taste of summer all year long. I would also freeze a stash for smoothies.. So delish!

I would bake them into scrumptious goodies and send them to my nephews serving in the military in Afghanistan!

I would be thrilled to win a case of fresh cherries. I recently started eating fresh cherries on a daily basis. Fresh cherries are a wonderful, health snack. Cherries help the pain and inflammation of my osteoarthritis. I would make cherry pies, cherry cheesecake ice cream. I would freeze some of the cherries, and make cherry smoothies. I'd also share my case of cherries with coworkers and friends.

We love cherries! If I had a whole case, I would make cherry jam, freeze some to put in baked goods, and eat the rest!

I LOVE cherries! To be honest, I'd probably eat them until they make me sick, just like I did 20 years ago when I earned my first paycheck from a babysitting job. My mother took me to Gemco & I spent all of my money on cherries, ate them all in one sitting (shared a few) & got sick. They are so addictive, you'd think an adult would know better but I still haven't learned, although I have been scoping out a cherry ice cream recipe online ;-)

We would eat them in everything, all day, every day until there wasn't one single one left! I could freeze them, boil them, bake them, juice them, puree them or flambe them.... Oh, who am I kidding....they would never make it that far... we would eat them right out of the crate! ;)

I would bake homemade cherry pies and share with friends and family. Of course, save some for snacking.

I would eat them chilled. I would make French Toast and top with pitted cherries. I would make a cherry pie. And then I would give cherries to family and to friends, and especially to a friend who has suffered a loss.

First let me start by saying how much I love cherries but they are costly especially for a large family but furthermore My family and I recently took on the challenge of being healthier which includes eating better and we have been experimenting with new recipes. If I win, I would love to experiment making varies of healthy but delicous foods/deserts for my family :)
