Personally, I love my cherries best straight out of the bag (and preferably on the beach;). A simple cherry cobbler is next best!

I grew up in Michigan near Traverse City (cherry capital) my parents used to pickle cherries and they were great. Cherries are my favorite and would eat them every chance I got.

Back in the 60's my neighbors had a cherry tree in their back yard. We were told that we could pick all the cherries we could reach. I think I ate more then I put in the basket. My favorite way to eat cherries is right off the tree.

I love them fresh! They don't stick around long enough at my house to make anything with them -- they're eaten right away! I do think they'd be delicious on top of vanilla ice cream, though!

I made my husband a cherry pie for Father's Day and it turned out wonderful! It was my first attempt and a great one! I would love to make another one.

I'm a minimalist--I like cherries plain, straight from the farmer's market.

Cherries in the buff are the best, but in a dish nothing beats a homemade chicken salad! The key is NOT to put in too much dressing and balance the chicken with the fruit (semi-tart apples, Bing cherries, plump seedless grapes, and/or celery). Marinate the chicken then bake/boil them in chicken stock to really bring out the flavor or else everything else overwhelms it.

pluck from tree, hold by stem over mouth, nibble a bit to burst the juice into mouth, continue nibbling while juices release sweetness onto palate. Oh, and then there is this: cherry clafitou, mixed quick, served immediately with a mix of cream and creme fraiche that has been steeped in fresh spearmint for an hour.

We love to pop the cherries straight in our mouths and fish out the pit with our tongues!

I just love cherries fresh from the produce stand or store...I love dried cherries with chocolate bits in my trail mix, especially in the winter...but most of all, I love fresh cherry pie!

Mixed into my vanilla coconut-milk ice cream. You're making me hungry.

There's nothing better than fresh cherry pie with a hint of lemon. My uncle made the best flaky pie crusts. His secret ingredient? Vinegar. He was a cook in the Navy and that's where he learned his craft.

I use dried cherries in salads and just for snacking. I love several of the products in this gift basket and buy them often, looks great!

In my summer salads, I place any variety of greens, and mix in julienned carrots, plus onion celery slices. Mix and place in individual serving bowls. On top, add 1/4 cup in-season cherries, 2 T. blue cheese, or any bold, chunky cheese of choice. Mix your favorite bold balsamic salad dressing and drizzle 2 T. over the top of cherries and cheese. This is so good and so many great comments from guests!

I love cherries plain as a dessert snack, and also dried cherries are great mixed into salads and also mixed into homemade cornbread batter. Yumo. Also love cherry preserves, and Ben & Jerry Cherry Garcia.

I love eating cherries plain. (They're even better when you pick them yourself!) They're also great in pie.

Fresh cherries, right off the stem at my desk in the morning. Makes for a great breakfast, and adds sweetness and virtue to the morning work grind. :-)
