anyone got any recipes to use 'em?

At first, I was thinking wine but recipes I've read have called for a greater quantity.  Next was jam, yum.

My neighbor has a crab apple tree with fruit.  Think I should ask for some and do a cherry/apple jam thingy?

I ate some fresh.  They were about 60% tart and 40% sweet and super juicy.  Thought a cherry wine would be good but recipe calls for four to five pounds.

Maybe just thaw them out and use as a syrup on some fresh cake or something.

Could make a quarter batch of wine...probably be a bottle or two.
 
Why am I so drawn to cherry pie? I can't seem to stop. Save me tiny ad!
