Cooked Cherries: Love Them or Hate Them?

Since cherries are this month's featured fruit in our Berry Tempting recipe series, I've been busy dreaming and scheming up the best applications for cherries in drinks, desserts, and everything in between. One thing I've realized, however, is that while I can enjoy cherry compote and pie, I much prefer eating them uncooked, in salsas, salads, or straight out of hand. To me, raw cherries are more refreshing, and a less cloying assault on the senses. What's your preference?

I can eat the fruit but put it in a pie, cake, and or cooked and you lose me.

I like eating cherries raw. My favorite thing is to go up to Door County to get fresh sweet cherries and just eat them by the handful. When they're cooked, they aren't as good.

Hate them. My favorite fruit is FRESH black cherries. I think cooking them ruins the taste for me.

I love cherries any way! Sometimes for breakfast I'll make a cherry-mint compote and put it over oatmeal for my son. He loves it!

A year ago I became allergic to cherries and a few other fruits (it's called Oral Allergy Symptom and apparently can affect any adult with pollen allergies!), so cooked, stewed, or jammed is the only way I can enjoy them now. But I prefer the real thing.
