Yes, I know it sounds crazy to buy two jars of maraschino cherries just for the juice but you can garnish this beverage with some of those cherries and use the rest to make cherry cobbler, make cherry cookies, use in fruit salads, or dehydrate for snacks. In case you don't want to pay store prices for these cherries, there are oodles of good recipes on the net to make your own ;-)

Here are questions related to Recipes Using Cherries.
I know from reading this forum that there are a lot of resourceful people. I have 3 pounds of sweet red cherries that I purchased that were left in the fridge. They are not spoiled, but I would not want to eat them. Can anybody please give me some simple ideas of using them? (simple being very important).
You could pit them, coarsely chop them in a food processor and add to things like oatmeal, banana bread, etc. Or you could cook them with a little sugar and lemon juice for ice cream topping. If you don't know what you want to do with them, pack into a freezer bag, label it and save for when you know how you want to use them this winter.
