  1. Pair with center cut pork chops in a port-cherry reduction glaze.

    1. My favorite things are pecan & dried cherry scones
      and a refreshing Orzo Salad with pinon nuts, dried cherries, basil and balsamic vinegar dressing

        I use them in scones also, with crystallized ginger.
        Good in biscotti with almonds.

      2. Add them to your favorite brownie recipe.

          Ditto. This is my favorite way to use dried cherries, besides eat them.


        2. I like them in corn muffins or cream of wheat bread/muffins.

          Also, nice with rack of lamb deglazed w/cassis.

            There is a fantastic recipe in Ken Haedrich's Apple Pie Perfect cookbook for sour cherry apple pie with cardamom. It is a great combination.

          2. I haven't been able to keep them around long enough to bake with them - I've been eating them as a parfait with yogurt & granola........ delicious!!!

              Yum--I eat them that way too--Also, with greek yogurt, raw cashews and a tiny drizzle of honey.

            2. I have two favorite recipes using dried cherries.

              The first one is by Martha Stewart from 1999. These are wonderful cookies. http://www.marthastewart.com/portal/s...

              The second one is from Sara Moulton and is her Dried Fruit Cream Scones and I use dried cherries instead of the dried apricots the recipe calls for. http://www.foodnetwork.com/food/recip...
