Cherries are delicious eaten fresh, and in cobblers, turnovers, pies, and fruitcake. Use them to make jams, compotes, and sorbets, or add to ice cream, yogurt, and puddings. They can be candied, dried, cooked, preserved, or macerated in alcohol. Dry sour cherries make a good addition when cooking hot cereal. Chocolate-covered cherries are a favorite, and candied cherries are prepared for Black Forest cake. Cherries are also used to make kirsch and other liqueurs.
