I'm not sure how to react to this news--that you, a woman I've long considered a kindred spirit--doesn't like tart cherries, one of my absolute favorites! (Though I am heartened by our similar views on tomatoes, and will have to try that bruschetta recipe.)

Sour cherry pie is great, as is sour cherry cobbler. You could make them into a strudel, with or without cream cheese. You could make mini cheesecakes (in a muffin tin--Paula Deen has a good recipe), and cook the cherries with some sugar & lemon juice & cornstarch, until they are a thick sauce consistency, and top the cheesecakes with them. Martha Stewart has a pretty good sour-cherry coffeecake recipe that you make in a tube pan, with a streusel topping.

Or you could mail them to me, and I'd mail you cookies in exchange! :)

Freezer jam (or actual jam) if you are so inclined. I don't have an exact recipe. You could also use them in place of cranberries with a cranberry sauce recipe. Myself, I just eat them out of the freezer by the handful, so they don't tend to stick around. Happy cooking!

My husband made a delicious melomel (fruit mead) using sour cherries. It got rave reviews from friends and family. If you feel up to the challenge of home brewing, I'd be happy to send you the recipe. :)

I eat them by the handful straight from the freezer. Stange to know I'm not the only one. You can also stick them in the blender with lemonade. Best summer relief ever. After the kiddies go to bed, throw some rum in the blender with those cherries and the lemonade and call it a "yucca"

you might want to wait several months on the rum...new to yer blog...(forgive me)

cake mix cobbler!

take a yellow or white or whatever kind of cake mix, melt a cup of butter and stir it in with the mix. put some cherries in a baking pan (enough to fill a 9x13 probably) and then smear the cake mix goodness on top. bake at 350 for 45 minutes or until the fruit is good and bubbly.

the sweetness of the topping will totally cut the tart of the cherries...plus, if you're really overloaded with cherries, you can make a few of them and give them away! it's the best way i've found to use berries that must be used asap - great with pie filling too. yum!
