A case of Cherries!? What I would WANT to do is roll around in them..yelling ohhhhhh....yumm...!!!!!!!!!!!! But I might squish some, and that would be a waste... My cherry addiction is in full bloom right now..I love them out of hand the best. I don't think even I could eat ten pounds alone, so I would share them with those I love the best! Thanks for the opportunity!

I think I would make a pie or 3, then try to find a good vegan cherry cheesecake recipe! Or maybe a Black Forest cheesecake...yum!

Cherry glaze on baked chicken. Cherry pie. And some cherry jelly.

I would pit them and freeze them. Frozen cherries are the best treat on a hot, steamy summer day.

I'd make myself very sick and very purple

I'd experiment with a few recipes for maraschino cherries. I'd also probably give wine making a go.

First off, I'd split the case with my grandmother, who just introduced me to the joy of frozen cherries, they are quite delicious all by themselves, plain! I'm the single mother of a beautiful daughter who loves them like this. And it's nice because I am busy trying to work part time and attend college classes, so having healthy snacks handy is a must! Grams also has a delicious recipe for vanilla ice cream and it would be nice to make a cherry-vanilla ice cream with them. Oh! And a cherry cobbler... (wheat free so I could take some to my Mom). Last, but not least, I drink a smoothie every day, and if I were to remove the pits from the cherries and freeze them, they'd make a tasty addition to my smoothies. So long as I didn't accidentally try to make the smoothies with my daughter Sylvia's frozen cherries with the pits still in them. That would be funny, but also it would probably upset my blender.

We are homeschoolers... we would experiment with drying, freezing, preserving and other methods we would research. Then we could share our new knowledge (and treats!) with the rest of our homeschool community :)

If I had a case of cherries I would: Give some to friends and neighbors. Serve them fresh as a snack, in yogurt or on with ice cream . Bake a Cherry Tart/Pie or two or more... Chop some and freeze them for eating with ice cream or mor tarts/pies/cakes. Make Maraschino Cherries in jars and give them to children as gifts. Children LOVE Maraschinos! And I'd keep some because you just can't make a Bishops Cake without them!

I would host a the most wonderful Cherry Party where I would serve, cherry nectarine salsa, cherry chipotle chicken Quesadillas, chunky cherry cheese spread, sweet and spicy cherry nut mix, Fire roasted corn and cherry salsa, Mango cherry avacado salad, Cherry chili, Biscotti with dark chocolate, cherries and almonds, Cherry tiramisu and Cherry creme brulee, Cherry Lemonade, Cherry Mojitos and homemade cherry Lime Rickey. Then I would send my guests home with a basket containing a jar or Sweet cherry sauce with ginger and Cherry mustard. I would use whatever cherries were left over for just snacking on with my family.

I just got a BlendTec blender as a birthday present - so I would definitely be making smoothies with some of those cherries! I can also make jam in the blender. Fresh cherry jam sounds good! And then there would have to be a pie and a crisp and some kind of breakfast pastry :)

If I won a case of cherries I would save enough for a cherry pie, some homemade chocolate cherry pudding and for freezing for future smoothies. Everything left over I would distribute amongst my friends and share with them how awesome Whole Foods is.

I would make preserves, pies and I would give some away!

I would share them all with my 6 year old daughter because she absolutely loves them. We would just eat them plain. And of course I would make my famous chocolate covered cherry smoothies for breakfast.

Eat them all...either raw or in cherry pie...or with my alcoholic beverage or in my home made icecream. :)

I'd use them to experiment with new crusts for my cherry-almond pie (it involves almond paste). The filling is perfect but I need to figure out a crust free of gluten. If chilled a crust of vegan white chocolate & ground almonds might work ;)

definitely a Cherry Pie or two...and reading the other posted comments, that Cherry Chutney really sounds like a good idea...They also go nicely in a roasting mode ...

I would make a cherry pie. Then I would pit the rest, freeze some on cookie sheets and then freezer bags. Most of these will be used for breakfast(homemade yogurt, homemade granola and cherries)The rest would be made into cherry pie filling and canned. I might also use some fresh ones for a fresh frut salad.

Oh my gosh - CHERRIES!! I could put up cherry jam, make cherry cordial, dry them to use in granola, make cherry pie, eat a huge bunch of them fresh while trying to prepare everything else. :) Never enough cherries!!

Sweet cherries - like every year; eat them until a belly ache, wait half an hour then eat some more through the whole 10 lbs! Pie cherries are trickier - need a pitter and lots of recipes.

The funny thing is that as I am reading about this contest, I was munching down on cherries. Yesterday, before I knew about contest I was photographing cherries. And next week, (or whenever), when I win this contest... I WILL BE ROLLING AROUND IN CHERRIES. I love them so much! I think they're beautiful, delicious, nutritious and the best fruit EVER. I love customizing cheesecake recipes to fit whatever fruit is available. It is very safe to say, a vast majority of these cherries would go towards efforts like that! xoxo

Perfect for pies! I hope I win, now you've put me in the mood to bake.
