My husband loves Cherry Pie and my boys love Fresh Cherry Cupcakes. I make a mean Cherry Garcia ice cream, too. I would freeze a bit to enjoy all year round. Going to try preserving this year, as well, so a few jars of cherries would make a wonderful edition to my winter stash.

i would constantly chase my daughter out the kitchen while trying to bake, as she loves fresh cherries and can eat an entire bag alone :o) as for the baking it would definitely be gluten free cherry pie, gluten free cherry dump cake and homemade cherry frozen yogurt with just two simple ingredients: cherries and kefir, quite possibly a drizzle of raw honey as garnish for a bit of sweet sticky yumminess :o)

I would eat every last one of them plain, in their natural state (well, I'd share of course). They're like candy and deserved to be honored the way Nature gave them to us.

If I won a case of cherries, I would give them all to my mom for her birthday. Cherries are her favorite food and drastically help her maintain a healthy diet and weight. But, of course we would have to make some cherry cobbler:)The case would mean a lot to her since cherries are so rare and expensive at this point in the season.

I was just reading a recipe that included pureed REAL cherries. I think I might like to try that, OH and make homemade sorbet. LOVE cherries.

I'd make jam. Last summer we picked fresh strawberries and made homemade jam and it tasted like you wouldn't believe. Jam with fresh fruit and real sugar (rather than high fructose corn syrup) is out of this world. A case of cherries would make enough to keep plus some to share.

I would share them with my neighbors. I am unemployed, so it would be fun to be able to share something with someone. I would take out baggies and let everyone enjoy in their delight. Of course, I would keep a baggie myself and eat them as they are. A delight! :)

If I am selected to win a case of cherries, I would make one of my favorite appetizers -- Cedar Planked Brie with Roasted Tomatoes and Cherries. Roasting the cherries and tomatoes takes a while since it cooks at a low and slow temperature in the oven but planking the cheese is a breeze. One taste of this molten, smoky, tangy and sweet concoction and you’ll be addicted. This appetizer is always a crowd pleaser because the experience is pure yumminess with every bite! Everyone always asks for this recipe so I would share the remaining cherries with them so they can roast their own batch of cherries and tomatoes and serve it on a planked brie to their friends and family. Bon appetit!

I would bring a pound a day to work for a week to replace all that candy we usually snack on. My 3 year old loves cherries, so I'd pit a couple of pounds for him. I may freeze some of those pitted cherries and use them as ice to cool his white grape juice. I can put a bunch in the juicer for me and my son, eat several pounds fresh by myself and make some cherry vanilla ice cream with the rest! Boy...my brain is smoking thinking of all the deliciousness!

I would probably feed them all to my two-year-old! He LOVES fresh fruit, and cherries are at the top of the list. My I'd make a pie or two, also. :)

If I had a case of cherries I would donate it to the church food bank. People who go to the food bank get canned goods, but things like cherries are a real treat. And of course, I would keep a few for my family.

I would probably make a pie, then some cherry preserves and I would probably freeze the rest for a future pie. And of course, I would eat plenty of them as they are!

I'd eat a bunch and freeze the rest for winter!

Oh, my! I think that, after I ate to my heart's content, I would make some little cherry handpies and some cherry-rhubarb jam. Then, after I ate some more, perhaps I would make some cherry chutney and cherry salsa. Swoon.

I would include them in everything and create as many different things as I could in one day that were also all gluten free. Desserts - Juice - Main Courses. :o) YUM!!! Then - with the left overs - I would share with family and friends, of course. :o)

I would be thrilled - I'd make several pies, and cherry buckles, share them with my friends and happily consume some as they are rare and wonderful. I'd have a cherry party1

I would find a way to freeze some so that I could enjoy their summer goodness all year long! I would make clafouti, ice cream, crisp, cobbler, cherry port reduction for steaks, te list goes on and on....but my very favorite thing to do is pop them right in my mouth! YUMMM!!!

I would probably eat about half the case in 3 days and make cherry cobbler out of the rest.

i trust whole foods to deliver the best cherries around. not only do i use them for snacking on (with a few slices of cheddar cheese), but my favorite way to use them is in my famous creme brulee ice cream with rum-soaked cherries found here. http://vanillakitchen.blogspot.com/2009/10/creme-brulee-ice-cream-w-black-cherries.html incredibly easy, totally delightful.
