What to do with delicious dried cherries?

Babette | Jan 13, 2007 06:00 PM

I have a large bage of exceptionally good dried cherries from Purcell Mountain Farms. These are moist with a deep rich flavor--great for eating straight, but there are a lot.

Some dessert ideas I have but no recipes: chocolate cherry bread, chocolate covered cherries, adapt a chocolate cherry tart recipe made from fresh cherries? Are dried cherries just wrong for cherry cheesecake?

I have already used some in a whole wheat fruitcake loaf with organic dates and dried apricots plus walnuts--very tasty. I do not like traditional fruitcake, this is not that. The dates and apricots are also from PMF and so worth the $$--I sent my sister some of the apricots & she is loving them.

I put some in oatmeal & that was good.

Any ideas?
