I love when I am able to acquire cherries. If they are tart ones, I would freeze some for later use for jams, jellies, pies, or cobblers or homemade syrup or extract. I would can some in a light simple syrup for danish tarts, or cobblers, and would donate some of the homemade items to the rescue mission. This is what i do everytime I am able to get a nice lot of cherries. If they are bing cherries, I would freeze some too for jams, or eat fresh, and donate some to the food bank. Thanks so much for the opportunity to win---we simply love them! ~Jan Meyers, Topeka, KS

I would eat them plain and natural out of a bowl while I sit in my rocking chair looking out over our meadow and watching the geese swim in the pond. Nature at it's best.

I remember when I was a little kid, my family would go buy a big bad of cherries, and we'd sit on the trunk of our car in the grocery store parking lot, and we'd watch the 4th of July fireworks. Last night, I was mentioning that to my boss at Paciugo, an Italian Gelato shop, and he insisted I take home our black cherry swirl gelato. So I took it to my mom, and we sat on the couch, ate our black cherry swirl gelato, and watched TV. Some things never change. Needless to say, if I had a big case of cherries, I'd sit on the truck of our car with my family and watch the fireworks.

We would practice tying knots in our mouths with all of the cherry stems! :)

First I would trip down memory lane to times of climbing my gramma's cherry tree in the back yard to pick and eat - or was it to eat and pick? - sun warmed ripe cherries. She'd bake a heavenly sweet/tart pie to share for dinner that evening. I love baking and sharing - must have her gene! I'd freeze and send one pie to a friend in Alaska, freeze leftovers to enjoy all year!

I would wrap them in individual bags and hand them out at the soup kitchen where I occasionally work so everyone can share in the treat! I know with the cost of cherries there are alot of people who can not afford them :) ...but they are sooo good!

Oh! I love cherries! With an entire case of cherries I would be sure to enjoy about half of them fresh, just as they are. Nothing better than what mother nature provides right off the tree! With the other 5 pounds or so, I would make a few jars of cherry preserves! It might not make a big quantity,but these preserves would be for winter time glazes for ham, duck, turkey etc!! Not for my toast! Pick me!!!!! Please!!!!!

I love cherries! I have 3 daughters and they love cherries, too. What would I do with my case of cherries? First, I will thank you very much for them. Then, I will share them. I am part of a community garden in the City of Highland Park, MI and would love to share them with the hard volunteers that help keep the garden looking beautiful.

I'd spend the first two days eating them fresh. Then I would make Cherry pie, some sort of preserve, and some sorbet. Anything leftover would be shared with my cherry-loving friends!

Cherries, especially red Washington cherries, would make a wonderful fruity wine. We've been wanting to make cherry wine for quite some time but have not found the right cherries in this area to do so. These would be perfect for this application!

What would I do with a case of cherries...I think I would have to learn how to cook/bake. I would go to 10-15 of the best cooks I know (friends/family) and ask them to show me how to make some of their favorite cherry recipes. This would accomplish many things at once: 1) make me learn how to cook/bake so I can help my boyfriend in the kitchen sometimes, 2) eat some delicious cherry dishes, 3) bond with family and friends, and 4) expand my culinary horizons. Sounds like a great way to spend time this summer with my favorite fruit! :) -Morgan

I would love to make cherry jam if I won the case of cherries . I make strawberry Jam every year and give it to my husbands side of the family because most of his Mom, aunts and uncle are in the 80 and some close to 90.I love to see thier faces light up when we bring them Jam every year. I sure they would love cherry Jam.

Depends on the cherry. Tart cherries, pies defintly. Bing or black cherries. I would eat out of hand til I burst. Or maybe control myself and knock out a batch of cherry perserves. Cherry perserves would lead to ice cream sundaes, cherry salad dressing, cherry topping on home made english muffins, toast, peanut butter and cherry sandwhiches, etc,etc, etc........ mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm cherries!!!!

A whole lot of baking! I am planning to go to school to be a pastry chef so the more chances I get to bake the better-- plus I love to make stuff for other people. :P

I will eat them with a fox, eat them in a box, eat them in my house, eat them with a mouse, eat them on a boat, with a goat... I will eat them here or there... I will eat them ANYWHERE!

Prosecco with cherries and thyme, cherry cream crescents, becoming a better cherry stems with my tongue tie-er--of course, pit spitter, cherry pies, chocolate cherry chip cookies, cherry limeade--the possibilities are endless! Ten pounds of cherries! And we thought life was just a bowl of them? Pish!

I guess I better get to work perfecting my pnuematic cherry shooter. I want to plant cherry trees all over my neighborhood from my front porch.

When I was little, we used to travel to Cornell University in Ithaca,NY to purchase huge containers of Cherries. They were kept in the freezer. Of course, I would raid these quite often. Now that I am grown, I still love Cherries. At first, I thought Cherry Ice Cream would be the ideal way to honor this glorious fruit. On second thought, I know the only way to give the Cherry its' true place would be in homemade Sorbet. The true succulent and delicious flavor of this great fruit would be highlighted in a simple sorbet with nothing but the Cherry, a little Lemon juice and organic Sugar. A treat for all to enjoy. Since I work not too far from a Whole Foods, I would happily share with you, too! Thank you.

I would share some with my husband and my boys who love fresh cherries - then I'd have to do some serious recipe research for some great new ideas for cooking with cherries! I love pie and sweet stuff so we'll have to explore some new tastes!
